Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Vertebral Arterial Dissection?

A vertebral arterial dissection (often abbreviated as vertebral dissection or VAD) refers to a tear of the inner lining of the vertebral artery. Located in the neck, the vertebral artery supplies blood to the brain, so a vertebral dissection impends blood flow and can cause serious resulting injuries. Recently, a 32 year-old woman was a passenger in a car that was hit from the side by a truck. Since that car accident left her seriously injured, she turned to The Kalka Law Group for legal help.

In our client’s case, she immediately felt pain in her neck and the inability to use the upper part of her right arm after the car accident. Our client suffered a devastating injury involving her dominant limb, which she immediately felt. The neck pain she also felt clued doctors into a potentially serious injury that was not suspected: vertebral artery dissection. Typical treatment for a vertebral artery dissection focuses on reducing risk of stroke episodes and further damage to another artery.

This can include the following:

  • Anticoagulation medication (like heparin)
  • Antiplatelet medication (aspirin)
  • Thrombolysis medication (dissolves blood clots)
