Conference paper


Extracranial carotid aneurysm are uncommon, but their clinical significance has long been recognized. Indeed, surgical treatment like proximal ligation was first employed successfully in 1808 (2). In 1952 Dimtza introduced the reconstructive operation, but the first successful reconstruction (aneurysm resection with end-to-end anastomosis) was carried out by Shea in 1955 (2, 3, 4).
