Patient Stories

Avid fisherman Jackie Pursewell went to his eye doctor after experiencing fainting spells and blurry vision. Eager to get back on the water, he was diagnosed with a blockage in his left carotid artery and underwent the TransCarotid Revascularization procedure at Vital Heart & Vein in Texas. “It’s a good feeling knowing you shouldn’t have any more problems going out there fishing, getting up and down in the boat. It’s a great feeling to be able to enjoy life,” he says.

Watch Jackie’s story, and Dr. Edward Baptista and Dr. Kousta Foteh discussing carotid artery disease and the TCAR procedure.
