Topic: Stent graft placement for carotid blowout syndrome in lower neck cancers : Experience of TVGH

Abstract

Carotid blowout syndrome(CBS) is a life-threatening condition encountered in patients with advanced head and neck cancer. Endovascular intervention with either reconstructive management with stent-graft placement or deconstructive management with occlusion has been widely used as treatment options of CBS. CBS especially in HNC of lower neck has abundant collateral vascular network and tend to involve major vessels such as common carotid artery. In this talk, we share some experience of stent graft placement for CBS in HNC of lower neck.
