Resumo

O pseudoaneurisma da artéria temporal superficial é um evento raro. Ocorre principalmente em homens jovens em decorrência de traumatismo craniano fechado. A maioria dos casos é assintomática, podendo eventualmente haver associação com sintomas vagos. A rotura do pseudoaneurisma e o desenvolvimento de déficits neurológicos são complicações esporádicas. Os autores relatam três casos de pseudoaneurisma de artéria temporal superficial pós-traumatismo craniano fechado. Os pacientes foram manejados com sucesso por ligadura e ressecção dos pseudoaneurismas.

Palavras-chave

artérias temporais; falso aneurisma; traumatismos craniocerebrais.

Abstract

Pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are rare events. They primarily occur in young men as a consequence of blunt head traumas. The majority of cases are asymptomatic, although there are sometimes vague symptoms. Ruptured pseudoaneurysms and development of neurological deficits are occasional complications. The authors describe three cases of pseudoaneurysm of the superficial temporal artery after blunt head trauma. Patients were successfully managed with ligature and resection of the pseudoaneurysms.

Keywords

temporal arteries; false aneurysm; head traumas.
