A case of carotid cavernous fistula resulting from the use of a Fogarty catheter in the treatment of occlusive disease of the internal carotid artery is described. The patient developed a loud bruit several days after opening of the fistula; however, there was no evidence of proptosis or ocular palsy. After ligation of the right internal carotid artery the patient recovered uneventfully. The potential danger inherent in using the Fogarty catheter in the internal carotid artery is again emphasized.

    Intrasphenoid rupture of a non-traumatic aneurysm of the cavernous carotid artery is rare. We describe a patient in whom this condition manifested with epistaxis and led to the formation of a pseudoaneurysm occupying the right sphenoid sinus. The lesion recurred after repeated attempts at...

    Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and carotid occlusive disease (COD) are both known to be specific manifestations of atherosclerosis. Because they both have a common cause, it is reasonable to hypothesize that they should correlate with each other to a certain extent, and previous studies have...

    High total serum homocysteine (tHcy) concentrations are associated with an increased risk of carotid artery disease in the general population. Since patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) have a threefold risk of cerebrovascular morbidity compared to individuals free of PAD, and since...

    The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of vascular events during a 7-year followup evaluation in a group of 34 hypertensive patients with kinking of the internal carotid artery and 36 well-matched hypertensive control subjects. The carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) was measured...
