Distal internal carotid artery dissection due to the carotid shunt during carotid endarterectomy



Distal internal carotid artery dissection due to the carotid shunt during carotid endarterectomy



British Journal of Neurosurgery 29(6): 862-864



We described two cases of shunt-related distal internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection from high cervical ICA stenosis. These cases suggest that for high cervical internal carotid endarterectomy, surgeons should reconsider using a carotid shunt to reduce the risk of ICA dissection.
