It has been ­argued in ­recent years that angio­gra­phy is no long­er essen­tial ­before under­tak­ing a carot­id endar­te­rec­to­my, rely­ing sole­ly on a carot­id ­duplex scan. A case is pre­sent­ed where an extra-cra­ni­al ­branch of the inter­nal carot­id ­artery was found at sur­gery. This unex­pect­ed find­ing was obvi­at­ed hav­ing ­obtained preoper­a­tive angio­grams. Anom­a­lies of the inter­nal carot­id ­artery are ­reviewed.
