Superficial femoral artery as a substitute for common carotid artery affected by malignant cervical tumors
Carpintero L. A., Perez-Burkhardt I. L., Morais D., Agundez I., Gonzalez-Fajardo J. A., Fernandez L., Mateo A. M., Vaquero C.
Tumoral disease of the arteries is uncommon. It is possible that, in tumoral reoperations affecting cervical structures, periarterial fibrosis due to radiotherapy and previous surgery and metastatic adherences to the arterial wall makes radical surgery difficult. We present a case where the surgical treatment of a regional relapse from laryngeal neoplasm needed the removal of the common carotid artery and its reconstruction with autologous patent superficial femoral artery. Surgical technique included a PTFE graft interposition in the leg.
