carotid pseudoaneurysm

Z Ismazizi, A A Zainal, G Naresh
Blunt trauma to the right proximal subclavian artery is uncommon and tends to be associated with pseudoaneurysm formation. We report a patient with right proximal subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm after blunt chest trauma following a motor vehicle accident. The condition was successfully treated with a combined insertion of a covered stent and carotid-carotid bypass as a hybrid procedure. Duplex scans at 6 month and 1 year follow-up documented good stent-graft positioning and no pseudoaneurysm recurrence.

Carotid artery dissection (CAD) is a frequent cause of stroke, accounting for up to 25% of all ischemic strokes in young and middle-aged patients.(1,2) It may be traumatic or spontaneous, with multi-factorial etiology. A tear in the arterial wall causes intrusion of blood within its layers, producing intra-luminal stenosis, or aneurysmal dilatation.(3) Thrombo-embolism arising from this anatomic disruption has been postulated as the essential stroke mechanism in CAD.(4) Bilateral internal carotid artery dissection (ICAD) has been rarely reported...

Although there have been reports of carotid artery pseudoaneurysm formation after adenoidectomy and/or tonsillectomy secondary to iatrogenic injury, there are no case reports of successful endovascular reconstruction of the injured artery in the pediatric population. In most pediatric cases, the internal carotid artery (ICA) is sacrificed. The authors report on a 6-year-old girl who presented with odynophagia, left-sided Horner's syndrome, hematemesis, and severe anemia 6 months after a tonsillectomy. On examination she was found to have a pulsatile mass along the left posterior lateral oropharynx, and imaging demonstrated a dissection of the extracranial left ICA and an associated pseudoaneurysm...

72-year-old hypertensive presented with two weeks history of left sided chest pain and hoarseness. Workup demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm in the lesser curvature of the distal aortic arch opposite the origin of the left subclavian artery from a penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer. Following a left carotid-subclavian bypass, endovascular stenting of the aorta was performed excluding the pseudoaneurysm. Patient had excellent angiographic results post-stenting. Follow up at 12 weeks demonstrated complete resolution of his symptoms and good stent position with no endo-leak...

PURPOSE: The superficial temporal artery (STA) is one of the terminal branches of the external carotid artery; STA pseudoaneurysms are uncommon vascular lesion, generally subsequent to blunt or penetrating trauma that could represent a trick for radiologist, especially when the only anamnestic information is "palpable superficial swelling". In this article, we describe our ultrasonographic experience about STA pseudoaneurysm reporting several cases with different etiopatogenesis. METHODS: Between January 2004 and March 2015 six patients (4F and 2M; aged 15-55 years, mean 36 year) presented at our department with superficial palpable swelling in temporal region (four with trauma history, two with iatrogenic cause) underwent to ultrasonographic study to assess the presence of STA pseudoaneurysm...

The purpose is to describe a case of traumatic right extracranial internal carotid artery (EICA) pseudoaneurysm, which is a rare entity and the evolution of treatment from surgery to minimally invasive intervention by endovascular stenting and coiling. We reported a case of traumatic right EICA pseudoaneurysm who presented with multiple cranial nerve palsies. Multiple radiological examinations [including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with angiogram, computed tomography angiogram (CTA), and digital subtraction angiogram (DSA)] demonstrated right EICA pseudoaneurysm...

Penetrating wounds of the neck involving the carotid arteries can lead to 2 possible and important late sequelae: pseudoaneurysm formation and arteriovenous fistula (AVF), if an artery and the adjacent jugular vein are simultaneously lacerated. Traumatic AVF of the neck are rare complications and if untreated may cause congestive heart failure, cerebral ischemia, thromboembolism, or even rupture complications. Current treatment options for carotid-jugular AVF include operative repair, detachable balloon, coiling, or stenting...

Infected aneurysms or pseudoaneurysms of the extracranial carotid artery are extremely rare, but they can lead to lethal complications. In some cases, infected pseudoaneurysms can be masked by the excessive inflammation of surrounding tissues. Here we describe the case of a 69-year-old woman with several comorbidities, who presented with a rapidly enlarging left neck bulge. CT was suggestive of an abscess involving the left common carotid artery. Colour Doppler ultrasound did not document intralesional flow...

Iatrogenic cavernous carotid pseudoaneurysms are a special group among other intracranial aneurysms. They can occur during the dissection phase of the surgery if the tumor encases a vessel. Complications of their rupture as hemorrhage or stroke are life threatening. Early recognition and treatment is mandatory to avoid catastrophic sequelae. We present the successful diagnosis and endovascular treatment of a postoperative cavernous carotid pseudoaneurysm following radical cavernous sinus resection.
