• acute
  • They underwent a computed tomographic scan at the acute stage, Doppler ultrasonography and B-mode echotomography of the cervical arteries, bidimensional transthoracic echocardiography, and cerebral magnetic resonance imaging, replaced by a second computed tomographic scan in 3 patients.

  • contralateral
  • citation needed] The vertigo due to VBI can be brought on by head turning, which could occlude the contralateral vertebral artery and result in decreased blood flow to the brain if the contralateral artery is occluded. (wikipedia.org)
  • branches
  • It distributes twigs to the adjacent muscles, and numerous branches to the thyroid gland, connecting with its fellow of the opposite side, and with the inferior thyroid arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • Besides the arteries distributed to the muscles and to the thyroid gland, the branches of the superior thyroid are: The infrahyoid branch (or hyoid artery): a small artery that runs along the lower border of the hyoid bone beneath the thyrohyoid muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Inferior thyroid artery Diagram showing the origins of the main branches of the carotid arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • The branches of the facial nerve cross the artery from behind forward. (wikipedia.org)
  • occlusive
  • Proximal right ICA dissection with mid-right M1 occlusive thrombo-embolus results in large right MCA and ACA territory infarct with small ischaemi. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Lateral
  • Together with the internal laryngeal nerve, it pierces the lateral thyrohyoid membrane, and supplies blood to the muscles, mucous membrane, and glands of the larynx, connecting with the branch from the opposite side. (wikipedia.org)
  • Injuries
  • Victims may have internal injuries, such as laryngo-tracheal injuries, digestive tract injuries, vascular injuries, neurological system injuries and orthopedic injuries. (wikipedia.org)
  • coronary
  • During proximal protection with flow blockage (Medtronic Invatec MoMa, Roncadelle, Italy), a standard 0.014-inch coronary wire was inserted in the dissection and could not be advanced further (arrow) . (onlinejacc.org)
  • Furthermore
  • Furthermore, SICAD recurring in a previously dissected carotid artery was not analyzed. (ahajournals.org)
  • Furthermore, the external laryngeal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve courses in close proximity to the superior thyroid artery, making it at risk for injury during surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Inferior
  • A second branch descends on the posterior surface of the gland and anastomoses with the inferior thyroid artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • causal relationship
  • Symptomatic cases have been described, for example tumours, dissections and infections, but a causal relationship between the underlying lesion and the headache is difficult to determine in many cases. (biomedsearch.com)
