Abstract

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Three-dimensional ultrasound navigation has been performed to assist in resection of cranial and spinal tumors, but to the best of our knowledge, no one has described the use of real-time 3-dimensional ultrasound navigation in the resection of neck tumors beyond biopsy. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: This case report describes the use of 3-dimensional ultrasonic navigation in assisting with resection of a large neck paraganglioma. The 3- dimensional ultrasonic navigation improved real-time visualization of the carotid arteries, the trachea, and other vital structures. CONCLUSION: The use of 3-dimensional ultrasound navigation should be considered in aiding resection of large neck tumors because it can allow more efficient and safer tumor resection.
