Occipital artery to extradural vertebral artery bypass procedure. Case report



Occipital artery to extradural vertebral artery bypass procedure. Case report



Journal of Neurosurgery 63(4): 622-625



A 17-year-old boy suffered blunt trauma to the posterior cervical spine and later developed vertebrobasilar transient ischemic attacks refractory to medical management. At angiography, a pseudoaneurysm of the distal left vertebral artery was found. By means of a posterior midline approach, an extradural occipital artery to vertebral artery anastomosis was performed and the affected vertebral artery was clipped distal to the pseudoaneurysm. The indications for this procedure, the operative approach, and the clinical outcome are described.
