Abstract:Vascular and parameningeal infections of the head and neck are rare but frequently life threatening. These infections include intracranial and extracranial septic venous thrombophlebitis, arterial mycotic aneurysms and erosions, subdural empyema, and epidural abscesses. They usually arise as complications of otogenic, oropharyngeal, or paranasal sinus infections, and management involves an aggressive combined medical-surgical approach.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
