In this article, a patient with extensive cerebrovascular disease who had previously undergone bilateral carotid endarterectomy and subsequent operative revision on the left side is described. The patient developed critical restenosis at the cephalic end of the previous left patch angioplasty as well as a severe stenosis of the left common carotid artery origin, which originated from a bovine aortic arch configuration. His right common and internal carotid arteries had become occluded. Endovascular treatment with two metallic stents was successfully performed through a surgical cutdown on the immediate supraclavicular portion of the left common carotid artery to establish antegrade and subsequently retrograde vascular access.
