A 43-year-old woman presented with a several-month history of transient ischemic attacks 7 years following surgery for a malignant carotid body tumor. Angiography revealed a pseudoaneurysm at the distal vein graft anastomosis and a stenosis related to the proximal anastomosis. Due to the extensive previous surgery an endovascular approach was advocated and the pseudoaneurysm was successfully excluded using a covered stent (Wallgraft). This is, to our knowledge, the first time such an approach has been used following carotid body tumor excision.
