“I am working remotely and continue the treatment. I wanted you to get this information from me. Till we meet again.”
Vertebrobasilar insufficiency is a condition characterized by poor blood flow to the posterior portion of the brain, which is fed by two vertebral arteries that join to become the basilar artery. Blockage of these arteries occurs over time through a process called atherosclerosis, or the build-up of plaque.
