Abstract

Penetrating vascular trauma to zone one of the neck is potentially life-threatening. Trauma in this anatomical location is difficult to access and manage because the neck is a small anatomic area with the anatomical proximity of vital structures. An accurate diagnosis and aggressive surgical intervention are critical to the successful outcome of penetrating zone one vascular trauma in the neck. Here we report two cases with review of the medical literature.
