A 58-year-old woman with subclavian steal syndrome is presented. The angiographic findings showed that blood was shunted from the left internal carotid to the left subclavian via the circle of Willis and the vertebral. Operative debouchage of the origin of the subclavian artery corrected the anatomical pathology, and gave symptomatic improvement.

    Cases of cerebro-subclavian steal syndrome have been reported in the medical literature since 1960. This most often occurs on the left side because of the higher rate of involvement of the left subclavian artery in comparison to the other brachiocephalic branches of the aortic arch. With the use...
