Abstract
This case reports a case of transection of common carotid artery (CCA) resulting in cerebral ischemia and stroke in 21-year-old-man. A patient was operated after 12 hours from penetrating trauma of CCA with favorable result. Hemiparesis disappeared on the fifth day, subsequently performing the surgery. Speech recovered within the month since the operation took place.
