Clinical trial tests new surgical procedure story image
LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Doctors are testing out a new, less invasive surgery that can actually clear blocked arteries and prevent patients from having strokes

More than 300,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed every year with blockages in the cartoid arteries.

So far, about 40 people have taken part in the clinical trial.

If all goes well, doctors hope to also perform the procedure on low risk patients.

Teresa Garcia visited the first hospital on the west coast to perform the procedure in a clinical trial.
