Endovascular repair using vein-covered stents in the carotid artery bifurcation

Published in Cardiovascular Surgery. 2000, vol. 8, no. 6, p. 499-502
Abstract The treatment of a bleeding carotid artery pseudoaneurysm in a patient using endovascular repair is described. Vein-covered stents were successfully employed. There were no neurological complications and no recurrent bleeding during 8 months follow up and carotid artery continuity was achieved. Stents covered with saphenous vein may be considered a treatment option for endovascular repair of pseudoaneurysm of the carotid artery.
