Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has increased in popularity as an alternative to carotid artery endarterectomy for the treatment of significant carotid artery stenosis. The access site is predominantly the femoral artery, with radial or brachial access used less often. Here, we describe a case of CAS after failure of brachial access. Transulnar CAS was performed successfully without complications. Transulnar access represents an additional option in a patient undergoing CAS when conventional femoral, brachial, and radial arteries are not applicable. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
