Surgical treatment of carotid stenosis consists of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid stenting (CAS). Restenosis after CEA/CAS is a challenging issue that surgeons encounter with increasing frequency. Here, we report a case where we employed several techniques for the treatment of carotid restenosis that were complicated by restenosis. Within 2 years, the patient underwent carotid endarterectomy, stent placement in the common-internal carotid, stent placement in the intracranial internal carotid artery, explantation of an extra cranial stent graft, a saphenous graft interposition and repositioning of the extra cranial carotid stent. A standard for the operative management of recurrent restenosis has not been established. Recurrent restenosis can be treated with different surgical techniques, but those techniques can be complicated by restenosis.
