Abstract

  • The incidence of symptomatic free-floating thrombi of the common carotid artery (CCA) is as low as 0.24-5% incidence in stroke victims. Patients are predisposed to a prothrombotic state
  • Historical management options were limited to surgical and medical options both with individual attendant risk profiles
  • Large thrombi can present with various degrees of clinical severity
  • The endovascular approach is a viable tool to manage these patients
