Vertebral artery rupture associated with closed head injury. Report of two cases.

Abstract

The authors report two patients with closed head injury who suffered laceration with rupture of the third portion of the vertebral artery. One patient died suddenly, with angiographic evidence of bilateral vertebral artery rupture. The mechanism of injury to the C1-2 segment of the vertebral artery relating to head and neck injury is discussed.
