DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2016-52173 Internal carotid artery dissections are rarely seen; however, they are one of the most important etiologies of stroke in young patients. They may be spontaneous or mostly occur trauma. Patients may be asymptomatic or may present with symptoms ranging between localized symptoms to cerebral ischemic events. Medical therapy, and endovascular or surgical approach are the treatment modalities. In this report, we present surgical management of an internal carotid artery dissection in a 77-year-old male patient.
