The authors present herein a clinical case report assessing the state of the carotid artery bifurcation zone while performing secondary operation for restenosis 7 years after the primary operation (eversion carotid endarterectomy). The redo operation was carried out using absorbable suture material during anastomosis formation. This suture material used in arterial reconstructions turned out to result in good reparation of the anastomosis, not inducing coarse deformity of the vascular wall, thus in the long run making it possible to simplify the course of the redo operation.

KEY WORDS: eversion carotid endarterectomy, absorbable suture material, anastomosis, restenosis, secondary operation.
