    In this report we compare a subintimal hemorrhage of a dissected vertebral artery to a subadventitial hemorrhage of a dissected extracranial internal carotid artery. A subintimal hemorrhage compresses the lumen of the artery. Therefore, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography and...

    Background Double origin of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (DOPICA) has been rarely reported in the literature, with a reported incidence of 1.45%. In contrast, a high concurrence rate of DOPICA and vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm has been reported. Clinical presentation A 61-year...

    The authors describe an extreme fenestration of the right vertebral artery. This anomaly was found incidentally in a female patient undergoing MR imaging and MR angiography evaluation for severe dizziness and headache. Magnetic resonance angiography showed that the right posterior inferior...

    The acute onset of neck pain and arm weakness is most commonly due to cervical radiculopathy or inflammatory brachial plexopathy. Rarely, extracranial vertebral artery dissection may cause radiculopathy in the absence of brainstem ischemia. We describe a case of vertebral artery dissection...

    Extracranial arterial dissections are a recognised cause of stroke, particularly in young adults. Clinical diagnosis may be difficult, and the classical triad of symptoms is uncommon. Imaging plays a pivotal role in the diagnosis of extracranial arterial dissections, and this review provides a...

    Intracranial vertebral artery (VA) dissection has three clinical presentations: ischemia, hemorrhage, and mass effect. Imaging findings of intracranial VA dissections vary according to clinical presentation. Irregular stenosis or occlusion of the VA is the most common finding in patients with...
