The left carotid artery is distorted and the inner diameter is widened. Is it serious? I don't know how to treat it next? Can you wait when the child is young
The left common carotid artery is thickened, but the vascular morphology and structure are normal, the intima is smooth, the vascular wall is not thick, the blood flow is unobstructed, and the blood flow spectrum is normal. If the child has no symptoms, it is generally not treated, and the drugs are not useful for this situation. Recheck and observe.
If a child has a distorted carotid artery and widened internal muscles, there may be some congenital development problems, such as symptoms caused by abnormal vascular elasticity. In this case, it should be relatively simple. If the child does not have some specific clinical symptoms, it generally does not need treatment. Just pay attention to observation.
It is only that the common carotid artery is thickened, the intima is not thick and smooth, and there is no atherosclerosis and stenosis of the common carotid artery or internal carotid artery. Generally, it will not affect the blood supply to the brain, which may be caused by normal development. You can do a brain magnetic resonance examination and cerebral blood flow measurement, and then decide on further treatment.
