Abstract

We present a case of rotational vertebrobasilar insufficiency diagnosed and followed by computed tomography angiography. Diagnosis of this entity provides a unique challenge in that the patient must be positioned properly to avoid a false-negative result without causing ischemic brain injury. The evaluation of rotational vertebrobasilar insufficiency with computed tomography angiography has never been described in the literature to the best of our knowledge. We highlight the advantages of using this technique in the diagnosis and follow-up of this uncommon entity.
