Endovascular Revascularization of a Symptomatic Common Carotid Artery Occlusion

Julie Kromm et al. Can J Neurol Sci. .

Abstract

Although the common carotid artery is the second most common site for extracranial carotid artery stenosis, complete symptomatic occlusion in the absence of devastating stroke is rare. We present a case of complete common carotid artery occlusion failing medical management and requiring endovascular intervention. The clinical presentation, diagnostic investigations, and management of complete carotid artery occlusions are discussed.
