Carotid artery stenting is a method used in the treatment of extracranial carotid artery stenosis that is becoming increasingly more common. Acute carotid thrombosis following CAS is a very rare and devastating complication that can be lethal for the patient unless treated immediately. We report a case of acute carotid stent thrombosis occurring immediately after emergent revascularization, and that was treated with intraarterial tissue plasminogen activator and intravenous tirofiban infusion.
