Blunt cerebrovascular injuries (BCVIs), once thought to be rare, have been recognized with increasing frequency in recent years. An incidence of 0.33% for carotid artery injury (CAI) was noted from our institution, with 24% stroke-related mortality. Vertebral artery injury (VAI) has been thought both rare and of questionable significance. Incidence, associated injury patterns, and outcomes were examined during a period of aggressive screening (four-vessel angiography).
