Title: Micromesh stent for treating a of symptomatic cervical internal carotid artery aneurysm


The management and treatment of a spontaneous carotid aneurysm using a minimally invasive endovascular technique is a rare procedure. We present the case of a 61-year-old man with a history of cerebrovascular events and aneurysmal dilatation of the left internal carotid artery (ICAI) in its C1 portion measuring 14.33mm X 10.79mm with a neck of 11.67mm on the posterior wall. Management is required. endovascular percutaneous use of the standard technique and placement of a 8mm x 40mm micromesh stent (CGUARD) using the FilterWire Ez 3.5x5.5mm x 190cm protection system in the C2 segment for greater safety, covering the neck and achieving immediate exclusion of the aneurysm carotid artery, follow-up one month after the procedure confirmed closure, carotid patency and resolution of symptoms, concluding that micromesh stent placement is an effective option for defect exclusion and low complications.
