Figure 1: Preoperative imaging revealed a giant carotid body tumor invading cranial base with low-density entity inside. (a) The whole cervical segment (C1) of ICA was invaded, petrous segment (C2, circled) of internal carotid artery need to be exposed to reconstruct cervical-to-petrous internal carotid artery. Computed tomography revealed a nonenhancing soft-tissue opacity with heterogeneous density, demonstrated by the red arrows in (a and b). (c) Digital subtraction angiography was performed showing the Guglielmi detachable coils implanted into patient's right carotid artery. (d) Computed tomography angiography confirmed a mass at the bifurcation of the internal carotid artery and external carotid artery, extending from the skull base to the clavicle bone
