Resumo

ResumoAneurismas da artéria temporal superficial são incomuns segundo a literatura. A grande maioria é secundária a traumatismos ou cirurgia na região temporal, sendo que 95% dos casos evoluem para pseudoaneurismas. Entretanto, os aneurismas verdadeiros ou espontâneos são extremamente raros e representam 8% dos casos de aneurismas da artéria temporal superficial, sendo estes, geralmente, de origem aterosclerótica. Aneurismas temporais espontâneos podem coexistir com outras lesões vasculares, incluindo aneurismas intracranianos. Nosso relato trata de um paciente com aneurisma de artéria temporal superficial esquerda, de origem aterosclerótica, no qual foi realizada a excisão cirúrgica, sob anestesia geral.

Abstract

AbstractAccording to the literature, aneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are uncommon. The vast majority are secondary to trauma or surgery in the temporal region and 95% of cases progress to pseudoaneurysms. However, true or spontaneous aneurysms are extremely rare, accounting for 8% of cases of superficial temporal artery aneurysms, and are usually caused by atherosclerosis. Spontaneous temporal aneurysms can coexist with other vascular lesions, including intracranial aneurysms. Our report deals with a patient with an aneurysm of the left superficial temporal artery, of atherosclerotic origin, for whom surgical excision was performed under general anesthesia.
