We presented the case of endovascular treatment of the restenosis of the carotid artery occurring after carotid endarterectomy. We have shown the need of applying the protection systems during the endovascular procedure, in order to prevent the distal embolisation caused by ahterosclerotic debris and/or air.

Keywords: air emboli, carotid stentig, cerebral protection
