"Carotid blowout syndrome" is defined as a hemorrhage caused by rupture of the carotid artery and its branches, and may be a severe complication of rhinopharyngeal carcinoma. This study aimed to highlight the usefulness and versatility of endovascular stent-graft placement as a rescue treatment in life-threatening carotid blowout syndrome. We describe the unconventional use of a 6 × 5 mm balloon-expandable coronaric covered stent in a patient with a diagnosis of spinocellular rhinopharyngeal carcinoma, followed by carotid blowout syndrome. Although long-term follow-up is needed to assess the eventuality of bleeding recurrence, the immediate clinical results were satisfactory.
