Clinical Trial Summary

Kimmerle's anomaly is a bony bridge over the posterior arch of the first cervical vertebra that forms a bony ring. The vertebral artery passes through the opening. This bone bridge could theoretically be an extravasal compression of the artery and disrupt the normal blood flow to the brain. Evaluating the data of X-ray methods, determine the frequency of occurrence and types of Kimmerle anomaly.

Clinical Trial Description

It is planned to conduct an examination of 30 patients on the basis of the Department of Radiation Diagnostics and Therapy of the Samarkand State Medical Institute. Patients of all ages will be examined, directed by doctors for computed tomography of the brain with the capture of the upper cervical spine and the cervical spine. with complaints of headache, dizziness, pain in the cervical region Among those who have passed the study, it is necessary to identify patients with Kimmerle's anomaly and determine the age at which it often occurs, whether it is a congenital pathology or the result of degenerative-dystrophic changes. It is also planned to calculate the frequency of occurrence among the population, the type of this pathology (complete and incomplete bone bridge, right-sided and left-sided location), the size of the hole formed. The condition of the posterior parts of the brain will be assessed in the presence of Kimmerle's anomaly on a CT scan. ;
