Rupture from cavernous internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysm 11 years after transsphenoidal surgery


Tom Morrison

Carotid artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of transsphenoidal surgery, usually diagnosed within 90 days post procedure. Pseudoaneurysm rupture may present with severe epistaxis or Carotid Cavernous Fistula (CCF) with significant morbidity and mortality. We present a case of epistaxis from pseudoaneurysm rupture over a decade after transsphenoidal surgery.
