Carotid Body Tumors


Carotid Body Tumors are a form of paraganglioma similar to glomus tumors (glomus jugulare). They arise form the chemoreceptors of the carotid artery in the neck.  A comprehensive team approach is required involving interventional neurovascular embolization and close collaboration with our vascular surgery colleagues to safely and completely remove these tumors.
