Extracranial carotid stenosis is a known complication of external irradiation to the head and neck region. We report on a patient with previous carotid endarterectomy for irradiation-associated carotid stenosis. This patient developed symptomatic carotid stenosis over the ipsilateral common carotid artery proximal to the previous endarterectomy site 3 years later, and was successfully treated with carotid angioplasty and stenting. This case illustrates the importance of Duplex scan surveillance after carotid endarterectomy for patients with irradiation-associated carotid stenosis. The complimentary role of carotid endarterectomy and carotid angioplasty for managing such a patient is highlighted.
