Injuries of the extracranial cerebral vessels represent only a small fraction of all reported arterial injuries but pose a significant dilemma over whether to repair or ligate the involved vessel. This article reviews recognition and repair of both penetrating and blunt injuries of the carotid and vertebral arteries, with special comment on the surgical exposure of the less accessible injuries.
