Case Report: A 74-year-old male developed cervical carotid artery psuedoaneurysm 8 months after carotid
endarterectomy. The patient was successfully managed with dual implantation of flow-diverter and conventional
carotid stent. Flow-diverter was placed across the neck of pseudoaneurysm to provide flow
diversion while carotid stent was implanted within the lumen of the expanded flow-diverter to approximate
and hold the flow diverter proximal and distal to the pseudoaneurysm. Follow-up ultrasonography
revealed complete resolution of the pseudoaneurysm.
