In brief: Yes

Depends on the vascular condition.
Brain aneurysms are a known risk factor for brain hemorrhage. Vasculitis is another one.

In brief: Embolic stroke

Brain damage from an embolic stroke is a major cardiovacular event.
Vascular lesions or plaque in the carotid arteries increase stroke risk. Both stents and endarterectomy or lesion removal are safe and effective procedures to lower your stroke risk. Each procedure also carries a small risk of stroke during procedure. Your providers results should be available to you, and may help you decide.
