The ver­te­bral ­artery: Developmental pathol­o­gy

The ver­te­bral ­artery (VA), ­whose embryo­gen­e­sis is ­unique, dif­fer­ent ­from ­that of ­any oth­er ves­sel, is char­ac­ter­ised by a ­great varie­ty of mal­for­ma­tions ­and anom­a­lies. Some of ­the form­ers ­are tru­ly path­o­log­i­cal (­that is symp­to­mat­ic); ­the lat­ter ­are ­just ­either ana­tom­ic or angio­graph­ic by ­chance find­ings. All of ­them ­should be ­kept in ­mind by ­the sur­geon approach­ing ­the ­deep cer­vi­cal ­and cra­nio-spi­nal ­regions, as ­well as by ­the inter­ven­tion­al radiol­o­gist. Width ­and ­length anom­a­lies of ­the VA, tor­tu­os­ity ­and kink­ing, ­course anom­a­lies, dupli­ca­tion ­and fen­es­tra­tion, per­sis­tence of prim­i­tive arter­ies, anom­a­lies of col­lat­er­al branch­es ­are dis­cussed in ­the ­light of a lit­er­a­ture ­review. Other pathol­o­gies of ­the cer­vi­cal VA (spon­ta­ne­ous aneu­rysms ­and arter­i­ov­e­nous fis­tu­lae) asso­ciat­ed exclu­sive­ly ­with genet­ic dis­eas­es as neurofibromatosis ­type 1 (NF1) ­and fibro-mus­cu­lar dys­pla­sia (­FMD) ­are ­also men­tioned.
