Abstract
Free-floating thrombus of carotid artery is very rare condition with high risk of embolic cerebrovascular events. The natural history and optimal treatment options are unknown.

Carotid endarterectomy and patchplasty was performed. Recovery was uneventful and the patient was discharged symptom-free with warfarin and antiplatelet therapy.

Key words: Endarterectomy, carotid; thrombosis; carotid arteries.
