BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Vertebrobasilar ischemia has been attributed to a reduction of net vertebral artery flow volume, the product of mean flow velocity and the cross-sectional area of the vessel. It can be determined by duplex sonography. There are no reference values for vertebral artery flow volume in an age group representative of patients with cerebrovascular disease. METHODS We examined 50 nonvascular neurological patients (age 55.8+/-14.0 years). Flow velocities and vessel diameters… CONTINUE READING
