CARDENAS FIGUEROA, Edgar; ABDO SARRAS, Germán  and  DURAN CARRILLO, Franz. Micromesh stent for treating a of symptomatic cervical internal carotid artery aneurysm. Angiología [online]. 2022, vol.74, n.1, pp.34-37.  Epub Mar 14, 2022. ISSN 1695-2987.


the management and treatment of a spontaneous carotid aneurysm using a minimally invasive endovascular technique is a rare procedure. This case resulted in the exclusion of the aneurysm from circulation, maintaining the patency of the internal carotid artery and its terminal cerebral branches.

Case report:

we present the case of a 61-year-old man with a history of arterial hypertension and six previous cerebrovascular events with brain micro-injuries without neurological focus. Angiographic investigation revealed an aneurysm of the left internal carotid artery, cervical segment (C1) of wide neck, saccular, possibly causing the patient's symptoms.


definitive percutaneous endovascular management of the aneurysm was indicated using standard technique and micro malted stent placement (CGuard™), covering the neck and achieving immediate exclusion of the carotid aneurysm. Follow-up one month after the procedure confirmed closure, carotid patency and resolution of symptoms.

Keywords : Carotid artery aneurysm; Micromesh stent; Endovascular treatment; CGuard™.
