AbstractSurgical excision is the primary treatment for carotid body tumors (CBT) and infrequently involves carotid vessels reconstruction. A CBT that extends distally to the level of the skull base makes surgical reconstruction very challenging. We report a case of a 30-year-old man who presented with a CBT (Shamblin III) extending to the base of the skull. A covered stent graft was placed in the internal carotid artery. Subsequently, a successful resection of the tumor with the arterial wall en bloc was performed, leaving the stent graft exposed as a bridge between the two ends of ICA.
