PMID:  9457724     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An elderly patient suffering from the posttraumatic development of a superficial temporal artery (STA) aneurysm is described. Because the patient had renal dysfunction, angiography was performed through a direct puncture of the anterior branch of the STA in order to reduce the required dosage of contrast medium. With the patient under local anesthesia, the STA was ligated proximal and distal to the aneurysm, and thereafter removed. The diagnosis and treatment of traumatic STA aneurysms in the elderly are discussed.
