Mary found the report from my angiogram in February that found my brain aneurysm. It says I have “tortuosity” and “redudancy” throughout my carotid artery. I can’t find a definition of these terms, though.
A Google search turned up a lot of medical abstracts, but not simple “layman’s” article (i.e., Wikipedia or WebMD).
What I *did* find out whas that “tortuosity” in the carotid artery is associated with neck spasms (OK; not “nuts” there), and possibly with risk of stroke. “Redundancy” in the carotid artery indicates a high risk of dissection of the artery.
But I’d like to know what these things *are*.
