hypertensive carotid artery syndrome
Explanation:
Although there are no direct references to translations for the whole term and I do not have medical science background, I think your word-by-word translation is straightforward and is understood by people in medical field.

I found that a revised version of "International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems", which is called "ICD-10", has an entry of "G45.1: carotid artery syndrome (hemispheric)". It is translated as "G45.1 頸動脈症候群(半球性)" in Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare's Web site.

I also found that "高血圧性***" translated as "hypertensive ***" in the following reference.

So, I would choose to use "hypertensive carotid artery syndrome".

Actually there were two mistakes in the original text, that's why this term cannot be found anywhere. It does not exist. The literal translation would be the proposed one, that's why the KudoZ points.
(the term that was supposed to be in the Japanese text was "hypersensitive carotid sinus syndrome")
