Variable Origin and Branching Pattern of Vertebral Artery and its Importance in Head Neck Surgeries

September 10, 2021 Biological Science 0

Arterial variations can be found in a variety of arteries throughout the body, and they are important for surgical and diagnostic purposes. The goal of this study is to find differences in the origin and path of the vertebral artery. The vertebral arteries are the main arteries in the neck. The vertebro-basilar system, which includes the vertebral arteries and their major branches, principally supplies blood to the upper spinal cord, the brain stem and cerebellum, and various portions of the posterior cerebral hemispheres. The origin and course of the vertebral artery have been discovered to vary. Surgical reasons for the cervical region include spondylosis, a ruptured intervertebral disc, tumours, infection, and trauma. In circumstances when the vertebral artery follows an atypical course, the data gained from gross anatomical dissections of cadavers can be a useful guideline for surgeons for thorough pre-operative planning and can help them avoid potentially life-threatening complications.
