Open surgical intervention is an operation of choice in lesions of coronary arteries. In some cases, however, performing reconstructive surgery is either impossible or associated with high risk of both intra- and postoperative complications. In such cases it is possible to perform an endovascular intervention, including endoprosthetic repair. The Russian and foreign literature contains either sporadic or small-in-number case reports concerning the use of stent grafts in carotid arteries aneurysms. The article describes cases of successful use of self-expandable stent grafts in three patients with a true aneurysm and pseudoaneurysms of internal carotid arteries.

KEY WORDS: aneurysm, stent graft, endoprosthetic repair, carotid arteries.
