 en Carotid Body Tumor Excision in a Limited Resource Setting
Nyabyenda, V.; Tuyishimire, G.; Gasana, E. & Shaye, D. A.

Abstract

The management of carotid body tumors has been well described with the assumption that significant diagnostic and surgical resources are readily at hand. For most patients with these tumors, however, surgical resources remain limited. In this case study, we describe the successful surgical management of a carotid body tumor at Rwanda’s University Teaching Hospital despite the lack of certain resources.
