Question: Can carotid artery plaque be reversed?

Completely reversing it isnt possible yet. But taking a statin can reduce the risk of complications from atherosclerosis. It fights inflammation, which stabilizes the plaque. For this reason, statins are often key to treating atherosclerosis.

How do I get rid of plaque in my neck arteries?

This surgery is called a carotid endarterectomy. This procedure is time-sensitive and should be done soon after the stroke or TIA, with the goal of preventing another stroke. During this procedure, a surgeon makes a cut in the neck just below the jaw, then opens the carotid artery and carefully removes the plaque.
