Abstract

Aneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are relatively rare vascular complications following trauma. Two cases of pseudoaneurysm of the anterior branch of the superficial temporal artery, subjected to blunt maxillofacial trauma are presented here. The first case was treated by surgical resection and the second was cured by application of continuous pressure. The review of the English literature has also been included. An awareness of these vascular injuries, despite their infrequency, is necessary to facilitate early diagnosis, proper investigation and prompt treatment.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
