Neurovascular - Causes and Risk Factors

The risk factors for carotid artery disease is similar to those for coronary artery disease:

  • Family history of atherosclerosis (either coronary artery disease or carotid artery disease)
  • Age (greater in men than women less than age 75, but higher in women after age 75)
  • Smoking
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • High low density lipoprotein (LDL, bad cholesterol) - although this link is not as strong as it is for coronary artery disease
