The anatomical features and clinical significance of this lesion remain to be clarified.

There were more left than right and more unilateral than bilateral aberrant vertebral arteries.

The acquired cardiovascular lesions were present in 9.5% of the patients, 20.9% of which were vertebral artery-associated lesions.
Eight (0.8%) patients had a vertebral artery dissection.
