Atherosclerotic disease in the carotid artery is a high risk factor for stroke. Stroke is the third-leading cause of death, constituting approximately 700,000 cases each year in the United States . The susceptibility of atherosclerotic plaque to rupture during the carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) procedure  makes it necessary to determine the force the plaque can withstand without the risk of embolisation.
