Aims and objectives

Both blunt and penetrating neck trauma may result in carotid arterial injury, including vessel laceration, dissection, occlusion, fistula, or pseudoaneurysm formation. Traumatic internal carotid artery injury is associated with a mortality of up to 40%, with up to 45% of survivors demonstrating a residual neurological deficit. It was our aim in this study to review the literature on blunt force injury to the neck resulting in injuries that have the appearance of   penetrating traumatic injuries and to provide an illustratory example of such a case. We also discuss the surgical utility of attaining pre-operative 3D CT reformats for operative planning.
