Abstract for case report

77-year-old male patient suffered from dog-bitten, resulting left common carotid artery dissection and left hemisphere ischemic stroke. Endovascular treatment with stenting and PTA were done and his right limbs muscle power got much improving after intervention.

According to Denver scale, our patient is in group 3 and suitable for endovascular intervention with stenting. Penetrating neck injury due to dog-bitten induces larger risk of carotid artery injury. Our patient got clinically good response to endovascular treatment.
