DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2020.172 Severe carotid artery stenosis is a pathology which is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The rate of carotid artery kink increases together with the increasing aging population. There is a need for concomitant treatment of both pathologies, when they co-exist. In this report, we present the surgical treatment that we performed in a 76-year-old patient presenting with carotid artery stenosis and kinking. Keywords : Carotid artery kinking; carotid artery stenosis; carotid endarterectomy
