Basel, Karger, 2005, vol 20, pp 54–63 Traumatic Cervical Artery Dissection Krassen Nedeltcheva, Ralf W. Baumgartnerb a Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology, University Hospital of Bern, Bern, and bDepartment of Neurology, University Hospital of Zürich, Zürich, Switzerland Abstract Traumatic cervical artery dissection (TCAD) is a complication of severe blunt head or neck trauma, the main cause being motor vehicle accidents. 53% for traumatic vertebral artery dissections (TVAD) among blunt trauma victims are reported.

However, Willis et al. [14] described several patients with unstable cervical fractures affecting also the transversal foramina, who presented in 46% asymptomatic TVAD. Pathogenesis of TCAD In 1974, Crissey and Bernstein [15] described four mechanisms leading to injury of the cervical ICA: (1) direct blow to the neck, (2) neck hyperextension associated with rotation, (3) blunt intraoral trauma, and (4) basilar skull fracture involving the carotid canal. Direct blow to the neck was responsible for up to 50% of cases in this report.
