Currently, there are relatively few publications in the literature on reconstruction of the common carotid artery (CCA). CCA occlusion occurs in 2-4% of patients examined for cerebrovascular disease. Most described surgical techniques of blood flow restoration for CCA occlusions are: coronary artery bypass grafting, retrograde loop endarterectomy, endovascular and hybrid interventions. These techniques yield good remote results, however they are not devoid of disadvantages.

This article describes a clinical case report concerning successful autotransplantation of the CCA in a female patient presenting with a tandem lesion: total occlusion of the right CCA and haemodynamically significant stenosis of the ostium of the right internal carotid artery (ICA). This technique is considered to be an effective method of surgical treatment of lesions of the right CCA.

KEY WORDS: common carotid artery, autotransplantation, carotid endarterectomy, chronic cerebral ischaemia, tandem lesion.
