Treatment of pseudoaneurysm of internal maxillary artery: a case report.

Abstract

Pseudoaneurysms are rare lesions secondary to blunt or penetrating trauma, temporomandibular joint surgery, or orthognathic surgery. Nonsurgical interventions are the treatment of choice for pseudoaneurysms. In the case reported here, endovascular injection of acrylic glue was successful in the treatment of a pseudoaneurysm of the internal maxillary artery secondary to fracture of the zygomatic bone.
