Penetrating neck trauma accounts for approximately 5-10 % of all penetrating trauma patients. Approximately 30 % of those admitted with penetrating neck injuries incur vascular injuries. Their overall mortality of 20-40 % and morbidity rates are significantly higher than for those patients that sustain penetrating trauma. Management with good outcomes depends on early diagnosis and prompt surgical treatment. We describe the methodology for the approach and surgical management of the vascular injuries of the neck.
