“It’s a dissection in the right vertebral artery, a very serious thing, which could have had a stroke if I hadn’t been taking anticoagulants”, he reported.

Vitali said he discovered the problem by doing an orthopedic exam, for a suspected herniated disc in the cervical. “I felt pain in my neck and shoulder, went to the orthopedist and found out it was a neurological problem.”

The injury, she said, is serious, but it did not completely dissect the artery. “The treatment is being carried out with medication and, according to the doctors, it takes about six to eight months for the artery to return to normal condition”, she pointed out.
