外傷性頸動脈閉塞から脳梗塞を継発した下顎骨粉砕骨折の1例 A case of mandibular fracture with cerebral infarction caused by traumatic carotid artery occlusion
Carotid artery occlusion is rarely associated with injury of the head and neck. Difficulty may be encountered in the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. We describe our experience with a patient with a mandibular fracture caused by a work-related accident in whom emergency surgery was performed. Subsequently, carotid artery occlusion was confirmed on the discovery of a cerebral infarction.
