Pseudoaneurysm in the inferior alveolar artery following a bad split in bilateral sagittal split osteotomy
MetadataShow full item record
Abstract: Pseudoaneurysms in the external carotid artery system are rare, mostly reported in the superficial temporal and facial arteries. The bilateral sagittal split osteotomy has a low incidence of complications requiring emergency interventions. We report the case of a patient with acute bleeding from a pseudoaneurysm of the inferior alveolar artery diagnosed by angiography and treated successfully by superselective embolization.
