Vertebral artery damage

Posted By Bruce on September 14, 1998 at 13:09:18:







My wife was recently admitted to the hospital after visiting a chiropractor.
She was diagnosed with a dissection of the vertebral arteries and is now on warfarin.
My question is could someone address the long term possibility that she will
1. Make a full recovery and not have to be on warfarin forever (doctors have said 6
weeks and then do a new MRI to assess status)
2. Suffer more dissections and be at higher risk for stroke as a result of damage
to the arteries?
thanks
