Carotid Artery Stenosis May Be Linked To Memory Problems

Also presented at the AAN annual meeting, a study of 67 people with asymptomatic 50% carotid artery stenosis and 60 people with vascular risk factors but without stenosis. Risk factors included diabetes, hypertension, high blood cholesterol, and coronary artery disease. The carotid stenosis group performed significantly worse on tests for motor and processing speed, learning, and memory. Language scores did not differ. Patients with 50% asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis generally are not advised to have surgery. This strategy may change.
