While carotid coils and kinks are relatively rare lesions and their etiology is poorly defined, their pathophysiologic mechanisms are generally well-understood. This has allowed the development of a reasonable and still evolving approach to both the symptomatic and asymptomatic lesions. Current surgical techniques allow safe repair with acceptable morbidity and mortality. Symptomatic lesions should be corrected, and asymptomatic lesions should generally be observed.
