Journal of Vascular Surgery
M TabataH Shigematsu


Extracranial carotid aneurysm caused by Takayasu's arteritis is extremely rare. We have experienced six cases of extracranial carotid aneurysm among 106 cases of Takayasu's arteritis that were treated surgically in the past 50 years. We herein review these cases and discuss the surgical indications and postoperative course of this rare disease. We report original observations about extracranial carotid aneurysm in Takayasu's arteritis.
