Abstract

The diagnosis and treatment of traumatic vascular injuries continues to improve as new tools and techniques are developed. In addition to locoregional hemorrhagic complications, injuries to blood vessels in the neck and face can result in ischemic injuries to the brain and cervical spinal cord. Surgical access to these lesions may be difficult, and endovascular techniques, including stenting and embolization, now serve as definitive treatments in many instances. This article reviews the endovascular management of patients with arterial injuries in the neck and face.
