Introduction: Extracranial carotid artery aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms (ECCAs) are rare pathologies with various etiologies, presentations, and management strategies. Historically, open aneurysm resection and arterial repair have been the gold standard management of ECCAs. Our study examines the evolving experience with endovascular management of ECCAs. Methods: We performed a literature review of multiple studies on endovascular and open management of carotid artery aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms. Conclusions: Endovascular stenting is technically feasible and clinically effective for the treatment of carotid artery aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms. Further follow-up is required regarding long-term safety and efficacy.
