Abstract

Dissection of the internal carotid artery is very rare; however, it is diagnosed more frequently with increasing radiographic diagnostic tools. Patients may be completely asymptomatic or may present with symptoms ranging between localized pain to severe cerebral ischemic events. Treatment is usually medical or with interventional radiographic tools. In this report, we present surgical management of internal carotid artery dissection in a 61-year-old female patient.
