The use of covered stents to treat traumatic carotid artery pseudoaneurysms is increasingly being documented. Adjunctive antiplatelet therapy is mandatory. We present a case of bilateral traumatic carotid artery pseudoaneuryms in which antiplatelet therapy was contraindicated at presentation, thereby dictating alternative treatment with coil embolization alone. Subsequent aneurysmal recurrence was successfully treated with the Wallgraft prosthesis. The literature on the use of the Wallgraft prosthesis for the treatment of carotid artery pseudoaneurysms is also reviewed.
