Tumors of the carotid and the vagal bodies
We report 18 oases of nonchromaffine paragangliomas (= chemodectomas) of the neck. The diagnostic procedures including angiographic examinations are discussed. Surgical techniques are described in relation to the risks and with respect to the preoperative precautions. The results of the follow up studies are given. We direct particular attention to the familiar disposition as well as to chemodectomas of both sides in two of our patients. Finally light microscopical and fine structure observations are presented.
