Adjunctive endovascular techniques in the management of postoperative carotid artery pseudoaneurysms--useful armamentarium for vascular surgeons--three case reports.


:Postoperative carotid artery pseudoaneurysms are rare. The traditional treatment of choice has been operative repair, which can present a significant technical challenge owing to the reoperative neck inflammation and potential cranial nerve injuries. The authors report 3 cases of postoperative carotid pseudoaneurysms that were successfully managed by use of various adjunctive endovascular techniques. The adjunctive endovascular maneuvers included the following: 1) endoluminal balloon placement for preoperative test occlusion and intraoperative proximal control to facilitate operative dissection in the first patient with a carotid pseudoaneurysm; 2) endoluminal stent-graft placement to exclude a large expanding carotid pseudoaneurysm in the second patient; and 3) endoluminal coil placement along with balloon occlusion to achieve complete hemostasis in the third patient, who presented with a hemorrhaging carotid pseudoaneurysm. Successful outcomes were achieved in all 3 patients by use of adjunctive endovascular techniques. These cases underscore the role of adjunctive endovascular treatment as an armamentarium for vascular surgeons in the treatment of complex carotid pseudoaneurysms.
