Summary Leading international experts summarize up-to-date findings on the presentation, diagnosis, pathogenesis and therapy of cerebral artery dissection. Several topics, such as the first animal model of cervical artery dissection, the epidemiology and its association with connective tissue abnormalities in skin and arteries, genetic approaches in the study of risk factors as well as the main etiologies of spontaneous and traumatic cervical artery dissection are discussed. The book also gives an insight into the clinical manifestations of carotid and vertebral artery dissection and to the possibilit
