Carotid artery stenting is emerging as an effective measure to prevent strokes in patients with significant carotid artery stenosis. We report a case of right internal carotid artery stenosis in which we used a transseptal approach for successful carotid artery stenting. This patient had concomitant stenosis at all three coronary arteries, including the left main coronary artery. A transseptal approach was adopted due to the sharply angled take-off of the right brachiocephalic artery from the tortuous aortic arch, where advancement of an extra-stiff wire into the right common carotid artery was not possible by a femoral artery approach.
