Jaw claudication could result from external carotid artery (ECA) occlusive disease. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has been shown to worsen the disease in the ECA. This could potentially worsen the symptoms in patients with pre-existing jaw claudication undergoing CAS. Meanwhile, ECA endarterectomy is routinely done during internal carotid artery endarterectomy (CEA). This has been shown to alleviate jaw claudication symptoms. We report a case of a high-risk patient for CEA who presented with symptomatic carotid disease as well as bilateral jaw claudication. Both symptoms resolved after CEA. We also present the case of another patient treated for recurrent high-grade carotid disease with CAS resulting in acute ECA occlusion and jaw claudication. High-risk patients with symptomatic carotid disease and jaw claudication should be considered for CEA and not only CAS.
