Carotid artery
What happens when your carotid artery is 100% blocked.  I did not have a stroke, but I was wondering what would happen if the bypass artery, whatever that is, blocks up also...

How did you determine your artery was 100% blocked?  Which artery is it and is it blocked due to plaque or dissection?  I have a 100% blockage of the left internal carotid due to a dissection and have not had a stroke.  I am investigating options and it currently appears that the only "cure" is a superficial temporal to middle cerebral artery anastomosis, which would only be performed if a stroke was impending.  There are a number of websites that explain blood flow to the brain, including Wikipedia.  Best of luck.
