We report two cases of symptomatic internal carotid stenosis treated by vasoplasty and stent placement in two male patients aged 57 and 64 years, one who had been suffering from transient ischemic events and the other had had a recent cerebral infarction with hemiparesis. The treatment sessions took place without complications. We discuss the choice of simultaneous vasoplasty and stent placement, some of the current possible indications for the method and the importance of multidisciplinary planning for the patient's evaluation and treatment.
