Three-step management of a newborn with a giant, highly vascularized, cervical teratoma: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2019 Mar 10;13(1):73. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Ruth Rappaport Children's Hospital, Rambam Health Campus, Haifa, Israel.

Background: A giant congenital cervical teratoma is often highly vascularized; thus, in addition to a life-threatening airway occlusion at birth it comprises a high risk for significant and lethal blood loss during resection. In the case presented, an endovascular embolization of the carotid artery that supplied a giant congenital cervical teratoma was done as part of a three-stage treatment soon after birth and contributed to an overall good outcome. Embolization in cases of cervical teratomas was not described previously. Read More

Multimodal management of pediatric carotid body tumors: a systematic review and case illustrations.

J Neurosurg Pediatr 2018 12;23(3):325-332

OBJECTIVE Carotid body tumors (CBTs), extraadrenal paragangliomas, are extremely rare neoplasms in children that often require multimodal surgical treatment, including preoperative anesthesia workup, embolization, and resection. With only a few cases reported in the pediatric literature, treatment paradigms and surgical morbidity are loosely defined, especially when carotid artery infiltration is noted. Here, the authors report two cases of pediatric CBT and provide the results of a systematic review of the literature. Read More

Managing Vascular Tumors-Open Approaches.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2016 Jun;49(3):777-90

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA. Electronic address:

The most common vascular tumors encountered by the otolaryngologist are rare chromaffin cell tumors termed paragangliomas. Within the head and neck region, they commonly arise from the carotid body, vagus nerve (glomus vagale), and jugular vein (glomus jugulare). Other vascular head and neck tumors include sinonasal malignancies, because of proximity to or involvement of the pterygoid plexus as well as the rich vascularity of the sinonasal mucosa; juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, a vascular tumor of male adolescents; unusual vascular tumors such as hemangiopericytoma; and metastatic renal cell cancer, which has a proclivity for an unusually rich blood supply.

Endoscopic endonasal surgical management of chondrosarcomas with cerebellopontine angle extension.

Neurosurg Focus 2014 ;37(4):E13

Department of Neurosurgery-Head & Neck Surgery, Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.

Object: Skull base chondrosarcomas are slow-growing, locally invasive tumors that arise from the petroclival synchondrosis. These characteristics allow them to erode the clivus and petrous bone and slowly compress the contents of the posterior fossa progressively until the patient becomes symptomatic, typically from cranial neuropathies. Given the site of their genesis, surrounded by the petrous apex and the clival recess, these tumors can project to the middle fossa, cervical area, and posteriorly, toward the cerebellopontine angle (CPA).

Surgical management of metastases that involve the carotid artery in cases of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2013 Apr 21;42(4):440-5. Epub 2012 Dec 21.

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Cancer Hospital, Peking Union Medical College, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing 100021, China.

The surgical management of advanced cervical metastases with carotid artery involvement in patients with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck can be difficult. The authors retrospectively reviewed 73 patients over a 15-year period comparing the outcomes of carotid artery resection versus peeling the tumour off the carotid artery. Based on these findings, the authors suggest that in the absence of carotid wall involvement, nodal metastatic tumour should be peeled off the carotid artery where possible. Read More

Clinical value of somatostatin receptor imaging in patients with suspected head and neck paragangliomas.

Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging 2002 Dec 21;29(12):1571-80. Epub 2002 Sep 21.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Nuklearmedizin, Universität zu Köln, Joseph-Stelzmann-Strasse 9, 50924 Köln, Germany.

Paragangliomas or glomus tumours of the head and neck region are rare somatostatin receptor-expressing neuroendocrine tumours. Precise preoperative diagnosis is of special importance in order to adequately weigh the potential benefit of the operation against the inherent risks of the procedure. In this study, the clinical value of somatostatin receptor imaging was assessed in 19 patients who underwent somatostatin receptor scintigraphy because of known or suspected paraganglioma of the head and neck region.

Selective indications for the management of extensive anterior epitympanic cholesteatoma via combined transmastoid/middle fossa approach.

Laryngoscope 2000 Oct;110(10 Pt 1):1660-6

Department of Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery, The Neuroscience Institute, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Ohio, USA.

Objectives/hypothesis: Cholesteatoma that is present in the anterior epitympanic space may extend medially along the supralabyrinthine route to the geniculate ganglion, labyrinth, and cochlea and medially toward Kawase's triangle and the anterior petrous apex. Superiorly it may erode into the middle fossa. Contemporary microsurgical techniques allow for optimal management of these lesions with minimal morbidity, provided that the irregular and complex osteology of the petrous base is understood.

Resection of the internal carotid artery and replacement with greater saphenous vein: a safe procedure for en bloc cancer resections with carotid involvement.

J Vasc Surg 1996 May;23(5):775-80; discussion 781-2

Department of Surgery, Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus, USA.

Purpose: Many patients who have advanced cancer of the neck will have involvement of the internal carotid artery. The management of this condition remains controversial, and a wide range of therapeutic options have been suggested including ligation, "shaving" the tumor off the carotid, or en bloc resection and replacement of the internal carotid artery by polytetrafluoroethylene, vein, or superficial femoral artery. We reviewed our experience with en bloc resections of the internal carotid artery in a consecutive series of patients who had malignancies involving the internal carotid artery at a single institution from 1989 to 1995.

Ligation of the common carotid artery for the management of a mycotic pseudoaneurysm of an extracranial internal carotid artery. A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 1995 Aug;33(1):67-74

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, Canada.

Although vascular involvement by deep neck space infections occurs very rarely today with the widespread use of antibiotics, they often pose a significant challenge to the modern otolaryngologist, who most likely will have had no previous experience with either the diagnosis or treatment of these potentially life-threatening infections. We describe the case of a young female presenting with fevers, dysphagia, and blood-tinged sputum, who was diagnosed by contrast-enhanced computerized tomography, to possess a mycotic pseudoaneurysm of her right extracranial internal carotid artery, for which ligation of her common carotid artery was required. We also discuss both the clinical findings which should lead one to suspect that a neck infection may be involving the extracranial carotid arteries, and the English literature, on the morbidity and mortality of ligating a common carotid artery.

Vascular grafts in head and neck reconstructive surgery.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 1994 Feb;27(1):91-123

Wilford Hall United States Air Force Medical Center, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas.

The best management of advanced head and neck tumors invading the carotid artery utilizes a collaborative, anticipatory approach. Preoperative characterization of the anatomy and extent of tumor involvement, coupled with the physiologic assessment of the cerebrovascular circulation through the variety of adjunctive studies, facilitates operative planning. Careful preoperative evaluation allows the surgeon to make the most informed decision regarding extracranial carotid artery reconstruction, should carotid artery resection be required for adequate tumor removal.

Department of Surgery, SUNY-Health Science Center, Brooklyn, NY 11203.

From the time Crile described radical neck dissection in 1906, this surgical procedure became popular in the management of metastatic cancer in the neck. Over the past two decades, the modified neck dissection has been effectively utilized for conservation of function and cosmesis while achieving the same oncologic goals. However, there are several instances where the above standard procedures are not adequate for resection of malignant tumors. Read More
