Magnetic resonance angiographic analysis of atlanto-axial rotation: Anatomic bases of compression of the vertebral arteries


The aim of this study was to identify the functional anatomic factors involved in the maintenance or disturbance of flow in the vertebral aa. during atlanto-axial rotation. Fourteen healthy volunteers were studied by magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) by a three-dimensional sequence in phase contrast centered on the vertebral aa. at the level of the… (More)
