Dan Ma, Min Liu, Hua Yang, Xiaogan Ma, Chaojun Zhang.

Abstract
Objective: To summarize the experience in the diagnosis and treatment of carotid body tumor (CBT). Materials
and Methods: CBT in 18 cases was confi rmed by digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Resection of the tumor
under the carotid adventitial plane was performed in 10 cases, the tumor with the external carotid artery in fi ve
cases, and the tumor with the internal and external arteries at the same time in three cases. Results: Neither
death nor any major complications occurred in all the 18 cases. Our follow-up of the 18 patients revealed neither
recurrence nor metastasis. Conclusion: DSA is the gold standard for the diagnosis of CBT. After confi rmation,
thorough preoperative examination, suffi cient preoperative preparation, and correct surgical approaches can
result in satisfactory surgical effects.

Key words: Carotid body tumor, diagnosis, treatment
