A case of common carotid artery ligation performed during the Second World War due to gunshot injury is reported; the patent internal and external carotid arteries were identified with color flow Doppler imaging, but vertebral occlusion and incoming contralateral internal carotid stenosis determined neurologic symptomps. A PTFE subclavian-carotid revascularization was performed with good results. Clinical and therapeutic characteristics of the common carotid artery occlusion with patent internal and external carotid arteries are discussed.
