Carotid-cavernous fistula associated with traumatic aneurysm of the internal carotid artery

Surg Neurol. 1978 Jun;9(6):367-9.


We report a patient who suffered two traumatic lesions in the same internal carotid artery-a carotid-cavernous fistula and a traumatic aneurysm of the cavernous portion of the internal carotid artery. Both lesions were treated by trapping procedure combined with controlled muscle embolization. The value of intraoperative angiography is emphasized.
