vertebral artery. Outpouch measures 2 mm in width and 4 mm in length.suspicious for an aneurysm. What does it mean?
A vertebral artery is a small artery that comes of of the aorta (the biggest vessel in the body that takes oxygenated blood away form the heart to deliver to the rest of the body) to give blood to the vertebrae. There are two arteries , one right and one left until the aorta splits. Since the aorta runs right next to the vertebral column, ...Read more
Could a past vertebral artery aneurism(?) present as a cyst on a cspine MRI (without contrast) at c6-7?
Ask radiologist: This may be a legitimate question to ask the radiologist who viewed your mri. You should make sure that he is aware of your medical history when he takes a second look at the mri. He may also suggest that you do a ct angiogram or a mra study (rather than a non contrast mri) to specifically key in on the blood vessels of that region. ...Read more
Can vertebral artery dissection cause slight bleed out or form hemotoma on exterior rather then within artery wall - if so, what could that cause?
Yes,not as above : Vertebral artery dissections can cause bleeding usually from the dissection/rupture of a saccular aneurysm. These aneurysms are more common intracranially than in the extracranial location. The aneurysms are typically located at branch points of the major vessel. Treatment of the aneurysm is typically endovascular, with the placement of coils to occlude the aneurysm. ...Read more
Could I have vertebral artery dissection? I have pulsating ears jaws cheeks bridge of nose between eyes, head rush w/ bend over whooshing in ears

Normal: This is a very common finding. Vertebral arteries are typical referred to as right or left dominant. This reflects one artery larger than the other. Both of the vertebral arteries join to form a single artery called the basilar artery within the brainstem. Having one artery that is larger than another has little overall impact and is a normal finding on radiology or angiography studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal variant: Hypoplastic right vertebral artery implies that this artery is very small and its function is taken over by the left vertebral artery. This is a normal variant and does not cause any problems unless you develop significant blockage in the left vertebral artery such as happens with vertebral artery dissection. ...Read more
