Abstract

Cervical artery dissection (CAD) is a common cause of ischemic stroke in younger aged subjects. Retrospective studies suggest cervical manipulative therapy (CMT) and preceding infections as extrinsic risk factors for CAD. In a case-control study, we assessed a questionnaire with 7 mild mechanical traumas as potential trigger factors for CAD, including CMT and recent infections.
