Abstract

Some problems of carotid body tumors regarding diagnosis and treatment are still controversial. From 1988 to 1998 we operated on 10 cervical paragangliomas in our Division of Vascular Surgery of Bari University. Three were bilateral and 2 were II Shamblin class. Seven tumors were considered familiar type (5 patients in the same family). Subadventitial dissection was performed in all cases after 4 vessel angiographies and Echo-dopplers. No complications occurred during the operation or post-operatively. Operative bleeding was reduced significantly by the use of subadventitial dissection which was accomplished in short times, thus avoiding more complicated and even hazardous techniques like clamping, sectioning or ligatures of the external carotid artery.
