Surgical correction of symptomatic vertebral artery kinking.

Abstract

Two cases of repeated posterior fossa ischaemia are presented. Other sources of embolization, except middle part vertebral artery kinkings were excluded. Medical therapy failed in both cases. A simple surgical technique was employed--kink straightening and fixation. In both cases the surgery was simple, safe, yielding the desired effect.
