Özet

Extracranial internal carotid aneurysms are rare, but the complications associated with the traditional surgical reconstruction methods are relatively high. Endovascular treatment has replaced surgery for treatment of a variety of vascular problems. We describe here the treatment of a recurrent extracranial internal carotid artery aneurysm using a detachable balloon combined with the Amplatzer vascular plug.
