In a fifty-one-year-old female patient, bilateral fibromuscular dysplasia of the internal carotid artery was treated during surgery with intraluminal dilatation. The backflow excludes the occurrence of cerebral embolism. The method and its possibilities are discussed.

    Neointimal hyperplasia leads to anastomotic stenosis in bypass grafts. These stenoses are often resistant to conventional balloon dilatation. We present a case of a carotid-brachial bypass graft stenosis, which was treated by a 5-mm cutting balloon angioplasty with a good angiographic and...

    Lemierre's syndrome, also known as postanginal sepsis, is a rare condition that presents as an increasing sore throat due to acute pharyngitis or tonsillitis and progresses to sepsis, due to suppurative thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. We present an atypical case of Lemierre's...
