Disease relevance of Vertebral Artery

  • In another group (n = 4), insulin was infused as described above to induce peripheral hypoglycemia, and brain hypoglycemia was minimized by infusing glucose bilaterally into the carotid and vertebral arteries to maintain the brain glucose level at a calculated concentration of 85 mg/dl [1].
  • Finally, vertebral artery cauterization under halothane anesthesia caused an approximately 2 degrees C drop in brain temperature for 1 hour, but prevention of this hypothermia did not significantly affect CA1 damage [2].
  • RESULTS: The patients showing dizziness or syncope when tilted to a 70 degrees upright position exhibited characteristic reverse flow at the end-diastolic phase on the Doppler flow image of both the common carotid and vertebral arteries, which was effectively treated by infusion of 2.5 micrograms/min norepinephrine for 10 minutes [3].
  • The angiographic, clinical, and genetic characteristics of fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) are reviewed in 37 patients (mean age 48 years) selected from a pool of 4000 angiograms of carotid or vertebral arteries [4].
  • The same may be said of PTA for vertebral artery stenosis, although the overwhelming majority of vertebral artery stenoses are morphologically suitable for PTA [5].
