Abstract

Carotid stent-supported angioplasty is currently under investigation in many medical centers, for use in treating extracanial cerebrovascular disease. The early results of CSSA in selected patients appear promising. While carotid endarterectomy (CEA) remains the current standard of care, we believe that a small subgroup of patients at a high risk for surgery can benefit from CSSA. This case report describes a patient with symptomatic high-grade recurrent stenosis due to critical angulation (kinking) and redundancy of the internal carotid artery following CEA with patch angioplasty who was then treated successfully with CSSA.
