Abstract

Free-floating thrombus (FFT) of the carotid artery is an exceptional medical condition with a currently unclarified pathophysiology. Approximately 150 cases have been described and published in the literature throughout the world so far. Thus, no definite management strategies have been established yet. In this paper, a symptomatic case of an FFT inside the common carotid artery (CCA) presented with a history of slurred speech, and right sided hemiplegia was reported. After the diagnosis of a mobile thrombus within the origin of the left CCA, the patient was placed on anticoagulation. As the medical therapy failed, carotid thromboendarterectomy was performed.
