Abstract

Aneurysms of the supra-aortic trunks are rare conditions that can cause peripheral neurological conditions or embolization resulting in stroke. The upper airways can even be affected and rupture is potentially fatal. We present a case of a patient with an aneurysm of the carotid bifurcation who was treated conventionally with reconstruction of the carotid bifurcation using a venous patch. Surgical treatment enabled accurate histopathological diagnosis and anatomic correction of the carotid bifurcation.

Keywords

Resumo

Os aneurismas de troncos supra-aórticos são condições raras, que podem ocasionar alterações neurológicas periféricas ou embolizações com consequentes acidentes vasculares encefálicos. Também podem ocasionar alterações em vias aéreas superiores e sua ruptura é potencialmente fatal. Relatamos o caso de um paciente portador de aneurisma de artéria carótida no nível da bifurcação carotídea, tratado de forma convencional, com reconstrução da bifurcação com remendo venoso. O tratamento convencional dos aneurismas de troncos supra-aórticos permite o adequado diagnóstico histopatológico e a correção anatômica da bifurcação carotídea.
