Abstract

The incidence of concomitant extracranial carotid artery stenosis and ipsilateral intracranial carotid aneurysm has been reported to vary between 2.8% and 5%. These complex lesions may present a challenge for treatment decision-making. This case report describes an asymptomatic male patient with severe carotid bifurcation stenosis, coupled with an unruptured supraclinoid internal carotid aneurysm. Both lesions were treated simultaneously. Patient underwent carotid stenting followed by aneurysm coiling in the same setting without any complication.
