  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We report three cases of radiation-induced carotid arterial stenosis that underwent successful angioplasty with stenting. The patients had received radiation therapy for tongue or laryngeal cancers and developed minor completed strokes 6 to 14 years after irradiation. All patients had multiple and bilateral stenosis, measuring more than 50%, of the carotid arteries. The stenosis was located in the internal, external, and common carotid arteries. We performed percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stenting. All interventions were successful and carotid stenosis de-creased to less than 28%. No permanent complications occurred.
