Endovascular treatment of bilateral carotid artery pseudoaneurysms after blunt carotid injury.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The detection of blunt carotid artery injures has improved because of more aggressive screening protocols. Initial treatment depends on multiple factors; however, controversy exists with regard to the treatment of pseudoaneurysmal degeneration, especially in this age of endovascular treatment options. Current options include anticoagulation, open surgical repair, and endovascular repair. We report a rare case of bilateral carotid artery pseudoaneurysm degeneration after bilateral carotid artery dissection caused by blunt trauma.
