Clinical case of a patient with occlusive thrombosis of the right common carotid artery

Cover Page

Abstract

The paper presents a case of a patient with floating thrombosis in the right common carotid artery and occlusion of the carotid bifurcation of the right common carotid artery against the background of severe atherosclerosis of the common carotid artery with 70% stenosis. Thrombosis was identified using color duplex ultrasound scanning in an asymptomatic patient. During hospitalization, thrombosis was complicated by a cerebral infarction of the right middle cerebral artery, apparently of embolic origin.
