Can I get rid of plaque in my arteries?

A Answers (1)

  • Lifestyle changes and medical management are effective at slowing the progression of atherosclerotic disease and preventing stroke, but the main option for removal of atherosclerotic plaque buildup is surgery. However, you would not be a candidate for this procedure unless the disease was determined to be advanced enough by your doctor.
