Carotid artery angioplasty and stenting has emerged as an effective strategy for the treatment of significant carotid artery stenosis. Perforation during carotid artery stenting is a very rare potential complication of the procedure. We describe a case of carotid artery perforation that occurred during postdilation of the carotid artery stent. In our case this potentially serious complication was successfully treated with a covered stent-graft.
