TALLEDO, Oscar et al. Extracranial carotid aneurisms: surgical and endovascular techniques. Report of 4 cases. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.4, pp.247-253. ISSN 1018-130X.

We present 4 cases of extracranial internal carotid aneurisms or pseudo aneurisms. Opposite to carotid stenosis, this entity is rare, and recommendations for its diagnosis and treatment are not standardized and subject to controversy. Each of the cases presented here were treated differently. All cases were males ranging in age from 24 to 77 years of age; 2 were treated using conventional surgical methods and the remaining two using an endovascular approach. We present here the surgical options for a rare entity with limited worldwide experience.

Keywords : Aneurysms; carotid artery; injuries; internal.
