Dissection of cervico-cerebral arteries and cerebrovascular disease

Cover Page

Abstract

Review of the literature and the author’s own experience on the dissection of cervico-cerebral arteries leading to ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attacks are presented. Discussed are issues of etiology, clinical picture, differential diagnosis and treatment of this from of pathology of cervico-cerebral arteries. Special attention is paid to modern possibilities of non-invasive in vivo diagnosis of dissection of cervico-cerebral arteries on the basis of newest methods of computerized neuro- and angioimaging.
