Abstract

An 89-year-old man presented with two separate minor stroke episodes due to high grade bilateral carotid stenoses, which were successfully treated with endovascular angioplasty and stenting. The role of operative interventions for high grade symptomatic carotid stenosis in patients aged over 80 years is discussed.
