Abstract

The vascular anatomy of the spine and spinal cord has been well recognized since the end of the 19th century. However, recent angiographic investigations have significantly added to this body of knowledge. Interest in the vascular anatomy role has increased in recent years; they represent the essential factor of equilibrium in the tissue perfusion of the normal spinal cord. The vascular changes that are associated with most vascular malformations account for the majority of the clinical manifestations of these disorders. In this presentation we aim to review the gross and microscopic vascular anatomy of the spinal cord and their appearance. Special attention will be paid to the angiographic aspects of the spine and spinal cord.
