The authors present an unusual case of a young male patient with a large left common carotid artery pseudoaneurysm in a shape similar to that of a bowtie treated with a covered Wallgraft. The Wallgraft is a covered stent originally designed to be used in the treatment of tracheobronchial fistula and peripheral arterial applications. The favorable outcome of this case illustrates its endovascular application in nonsurgical traumatic injuries of the carotid artery.
