  • Look Inside

Vertebral artery (VA) dissections are uncommon, but are increasingly recognized as a cause of posterior circula-tion stroke in young adults. We describe a patient with bilateral VA dissection who presented SAH. The patient was successfully treated by proximal coil occlusion of the bilateral vertebral arteries in two stages. In the treatment of SAH due to bilateral VA dissection, it is important to estimate the status of the treated vessels or contralateral vesssels by follow-up angiography. Staged bilateral proximal VA occlusions should be considered in the case of recur-rent VA dissection or progressive aneurysm enlargement.
