Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Delayed cerebral infarction occurred after dog bites in the region of the internal carotid artery of a 7-year-old boy. Initial wound exploration and repair did not reveal any signs of vascular trauma. Understanding the dynamics of the bites and relating the wounds topographically to the course of the underlying large vessels are key factors in early diagnosis of occult vascular damage.
