SANTOS JUNIOR, Edson Pedroza dos et al. Pseudoaneurysm of common carotid due to trauma: treatment option for open sky surgery. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.3, pp.261-265. ISSN 1677-5449.

Case report of a female patient, 44 years-old, victim of cervical trauma in a traffic accident, who had painful cervical mass, associated with hoarseness and dysphagia three weeks after trauma. Additional tests identified the pseudoaneurysm of common carotid artery in zone II. We opted for treatment through the open conventional surgery with excellent immediate result. Control examination was performed seven months after surgery, and the results confirmed the therapeutic success.

Keywords : pseudoaneurysm; extracranial carotid; surgery.
