Vertebral Artery Occlusion
I have a question for Dr. Young or anyone else with knowledge about vertebral artery occlusions. I provide care for a c4/c5 incomplete quad who has a left vertebral artery occlusion. She is concerned that because of this she will not be eligible for any clinical trials or treatments that may become available in the future. She has been told by many doctors that she is better off having a total occlusion than partial and therefore her concern is that if she should receive treatment that it may affect her occluded artery in a bad way.
Is this a valid concern in anyone's opinion?
Thanks in advance,
