Abstract

We report the case of a 62-year-old male patient, admitted for aortic valve replacement. Bilateral common carotid artery occlusion and bilateral internal carotid artery occlusion have been reported, as well as right vertebral artery occlusion. Aortic valve replacement was performed in the standard fashion using the cardiopulmonary bypass. No neurological deficit was apparent on emergence from anesthesia. Keywords: bilateral carotid occlusion, the vertebral artery occlusion, cardiac surgery
