A 53-year-old female patient was admitted to our clinic with neurological and ophthalmological symptoms and resistant arterial hypertension. After two-stage operation including bilateral carotid resection and carotid neo-bifurcation creation, the blood flow through the vascular regions with abnormal hemodynamics returned to normal and the symptoms of the patient resolved completely.
