Can carotid artery stenosis cause increased brain pressure if left untreated?

No. No. Carotid stenosis is the blockage of blood flow to the brain which significantly increases the risk of stroke. A blockage in the carotid artery would more likely decrease blood flow/pressure in the brain.
No. Just the opposite, decreased pressure. If the jugular veins are blocked this can cause increased pressure of the brain.

Can carotid artery stenosis cause sciatica?

No. There are arterial conditions in your legs that can cause leg pain similar to sciatica in some cases. Your carotid artery in your neck is too far removed from your legs to affect them in this way. Vascular disease in your carotid artery however may suggest vascular problems elsewhere such as your legs. You can be assessed by lumbar MRI and vascular assessment of your legs to assess leg pain.

P.A.D. Vascular disease causes hardening of the arteries which can turn cause leg pain and mimick nerve impingement or radiculopathy down the legs.

Do you know the data sheet for examination of a patient of carotid artery stenosis?

Variable. Carotid evaluations can be done with physical exam, ultrasound(doppler) and ct, mra and angiography in properly selected patients. The dat-results are presented in variable formats but leading to degree of narrowing(stenosis) or irregularity(ulceration). Read more...

Could you know the data sheet for examination of a patient of carotid artery stenosis?

Unclear. I'm not clear what you're asking? If carotid stenosis is suspected, the neck is auscultated for bruits. The pt is queried for neurologic deficit and, if appropriate, a neurologic exam is done. Duplex ultrasound exam of the neck is done. If necessary, a ct, mra, or angiogram may be necessary in selected cases. Read more...

What is carotid artery stenosis and stroke?

Blocked plumbing. Your carotid arteries deliver blood to your brain and head. Carotid artery stenosis is when gunk and inflammation make it harder for the blood to flow. When your brain doesn't get enough blood, parts of your brain can die. That's a stroke. The good news? You can prevent this by: eating right, moving 30-60 minutes every day, controlling your blood pressure, not smoking. Thanks for asking. Read more...
2 things. Carotid artery stenosis means narrowing of the artery. Stroke is death or damage to brain due to circulatory issues. Many strokes (approx 1/3rd) are due to carotid artery disease. Although frequently connected, they are not the same. Many strokes occur without carotid stenosis. Many carotids are completely occluded (slowly) without resultant strokes. Read more...
See below. Carotid artery disease means that the carotid arteries have blockage, usually in the form of atherosclerosis. This can cause stroke. The more severe the blockage, the greater the risk in the absence of neurological symptoms, most cases can be handled with medicine and close periodic follow up by a vascular surgeon. However, if the blockage is more than 80%, surgery will reduce the risk of stroke. Read more...
