Soccer, one of the most popular sports worldwide among young men, can result in a wide range of orthopedic injuries. Although vascular injuries such as dissection occur rarely, they can cause significant mortality if left undiagnosed. We report herein a 31-year-old male who suffered a large middle cerebral artery infarction due to traumatic internal carotid artery dissection after a ball struck his head and neck. He recovered with mild neurologic deficit after decompressive surgery.

Carotid cavernous fistula (CCF) is an abnormal communication between cavernous sinus and carotid arterial system. Diagnosis depends on clinical manifestations and MRI findings and angiography. Clinical presentation of CCFs is characterized with chemosis, orbital bruit and pulsatile proptosis. Cranial nerve dysfunction and orbital pain might accompany these symptoms. Although spontaneous remission might occur, sometimes CCF might develop life threatening complications. Here in this case we presented a patient with CCF who afterwards developed bilateral thalamic infarct. Cerebral ischemia in CCF is a rare complication and CCF together . . . with bilateral thalamic infarct has not been reported before Daha fazlası Daha az

Materials and Method: A descriptive, and retrospective study was planned. Demographic characteristics, present diseases, use of medications, neurological diagnoses were recorded from the patients files. Results: Geriatric patient group constituted 58.78% of the cases. Emergency department Of the 439 patients transferred to the neurology ward 239 (54.4 %) were female and 200 (45.6%) . . .were male. The rates of comorbid diseases were found to be as follows; hypertension 315 (71.8%), coronary artery disease 127 (28.9 %), diabetes mellitus 102 (23.2 %), history of stroke 111(25.3%), dyslipidemia 37 (8.4%) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 35 (8.0%). 352 (80.2%) of the cases were using drug regularly.
