Abstract

In the paper, possibilities of endovascular treatment of internal carotid artery stenosis are presented. The superiority of this technique over surgical repair was documented: less-invasive treatment in the local anaesthesia. We focused on indications to endovascular technique and present methods of intraluminal treatment. The authors describe the results of the treatment and present the particular usefulness of this method in the management of patients with advanced cardiological concomitant diseases requiring invasive treatment such as: PTCA or CABG.
