Traumatic Extracranial Vertebral Artery Aneurysm


A young female patient was referred to our Department of Vascular Surgery with a pulsatile cervico’occipital lump with neurological symptoms of three years duration. She underwent routine investigations followed by selective four vessel angiography which confirmed the presence of a very large sized Extracranial Vertebral Artery Aneurysm, Retrograde flow via the opposite Vertebral Artery was demonstrated. An aneurysmectomy was performed after proximal ligation of Vertebral Artery at source. The existing literature was reviewed and updated.
