    Title Early-onset Postirradiation Sarcoma of the Head and Neck: Report of Three Cases.
    Date August 2002
    Journal Ear, Nose, & Throat Journal
    Excerpt

    Postirradiation sarcomas of the head and neck are rare. When they do occur, most appear at least 10 years following radiation therapy. We report three cases of early-onset (1, 2, and 7 yr) postirradiation sarcoma. Physicians who care for previously irradiated patients should consider the possibility of a postirradiation sarcoma whenever they see a suspicious lesion, regardless of the amount of time that has passed since radiation therapy was administered. The original pathology should be reexamined to ensure that the original tumor was diagnosed correctly. Electron microscopy can be useful in differentiating sarcomatous-appearing epithelial lesions from true soft-tissue sarcomas, and thus can be helpful in guiding therapy.

    Title Epistaxis Originating from Traumatic Pseudoaneurysm of the Internal Carotid Artery: Diagnosis and Endovascular Therapy.
    Date March 1998
    Journal The Laryngoscope
    Excerpt

    Posttraumatic pseudoaneurysm of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is an uncommon but potentially fatal cause of epistaxis. Because the onset of delayed bleeding from the time of injury is variable, prompt diagnosis of cavernous ICA pseudoaneurysm is often a clinical challenge. The relative urgency to evaluate for this disease is highlighted by the morbid nature of this entity. Optimal management demands rapid recognition and treatment to give the best functional outcome. The authors present a case series of six patients with skull base ICA pseudoaneurysm. A unifying feature in the majority of patients is the development of delayed, massive epistaxis. The time course for presentation of delayed life-threatening epistaxis ranged from 5 days to 9 weeks. Two patients exhibited the classic triad of unilateral blindness, orbital fractures, and massive epistaxis. All patients requiring intervention were successfully treated with endovascular embolization techniques that included detachable balloons and coils. The clinical and radiologic findings in this case series are presented. The relevant anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment of traumatic ICA pseudoaneurysm are reviewed. A contemporary treatment strategy is proposed.

    Date November 1988
