Agenesis of common carotid artery is rare and no report of stenting procedures (carotid artery stenting) for associated stenosis of the internal carotid have been published. We report a case of internal carotid stenosis associated with this anomaly. A 73-year-old male with left internal carotid artery originating from the arch, with significant stenosis, was referred to us. Wallstent was deployed with success. Carotid artery stenting should be reserved to uncomplicated arch anatomy and plaques with low fragmentation risk.
