"Pearls:
  • Should always consider carotid/cervical dissection as cause of ischemic symptoms in patients that are young, lack risk factors for thrombotic/embolic stroke, or complaining of neck pain
  • Trauma patients with significant head/neck trauma and neurologic deficits, should evaluate for carotid or vertebral artery dissection
  • Consider carotid dissection in patients presenting with neck pain or headache that started in the context of activities that cause torsion or blunt trauma to neck"
