Symptomatic Carotid Near Total Occlusion Treated by Carotid Stenting

Background

A 69 year old male presented with right upper and lower limb weakness for 10 days. He had a history of recurrent Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA) for 3 years.

Diagnosis And Treatment

Doppler study revealed bilateral carotid artery stenosis (left >right). DSA revealed near total occlusion of left proximal cervical ICA with inadequate antegrade flow in left MCA territories. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stenting of left ICA stenosis was performed using distal embolic protection device. Carotid wall stent was deployed and adequate antegrade flow in left MCA territories was restored. The patient was discharged with GCS of E4V5M6 and 5/5 power in all four limbs on second post operative day.
