Abstract

Recurrent stenosis >50% of the internal carotid artery after endarterectomy occurs in 13% [1] of cases. Its treatment usually involves surgical intervention, which is difficult for the surgeon. We report successful balloon dilatation of an internal carotid restenosis after endarterectomy.
