The significance of dolichoarteriopathies of the internal carotid artery (ICA) both in isolation and in the context of the proximal stenosis is a topic of contention. The majority of asymptomatic cases are treated conservatively, however symptomatic cases which can present as transient ischemic attacks or stroke, often require surgical intervention. Herein, we discuss unique surgical management of a patient with a symptomatic high-grade left internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis and concurrent ICA coiling in which an end-to-side anastomosis onto the external carotid artery was performed.
