  1. Use of histomorphometry in the assessment of fatal vertebral artery dissection.

    Article - En anglais

    Aim-To assess morphometrically the structural changes, which occur with ageing, along the length of the vertebral artery.

    Methods-A series of 36 vessels were removed at necropsy from subjects aged between 9 months and 86 years.

    Image analysis was used to measure the medial width, the circumference, the intimal: medial area ratio and the adventitial: medial area ratio along each artery.

    The artery from a case of fatal vertebral artery dissection, which occurred after a game of cricket and then chiropractic neck manipulation, was also examined in the same manner.

    The proteoglycan accumulation in the media was quantified using an eyepiece graticule.
