June Case: Traumatic carotid dissection: Some links you might find useful background reading.

June 13, 2014

Hi All,

Before I have a few hours sleep after my rather interesting nights shift in emergency theatre, I thought I’d post a few links.

Remember, you are never to old to learn or to young to stretch over your horizons or to stubborn to broaden your differential diagnosis. It’s a relatively rare condition, but definitely should alway be kept in mind in high speed motor vehicle accidents.

Here are a few links you could read through. Every day is a school day….

Cervical%20carotid%20artery%20dissection.%20Current%20review%20of%20Dg%20and%20Tt_Patel,%20Cardiol%20Rev..pdf

https://www.inkling.com/read/vascular-and-endovascular-surgery-beard-gaines-loftus-5th/chapter-9/cervical-vascular-injuries 

If some of the links aren’t working, try copy and past it into your browser of choice.

Conclusion and case summary bit later.

Hope you’ve enjoyed it so far.
