Carotid vascular trauma has high mortality. The two primary causes of death are associated head injury and vascular injuries that cause exsanguination or stroke. In the past two decades interventional radiology, i.e. techniques of transcatheter embolisation, has become a vital component of the care of these cases. External carotid artery injuries are complex and are often inaccessible causes of exsanguinating haemorrhage. Transcatheter techniques have been shown to be highly effective in controlling this haemorrhage. An overview of injuries of the external carotid artery and its branches is presented.
