Case Discussion

Incidental finding of fenestration of the distal (V4) vertebral artery.

Fenestration is the division of lumen of the vessel into two separate and parallel channels which rejoin distally. It usually does not have any clinical significance but an aneurysm may arise from the proximal part of fenestration.
