✓ The authors present the case of a patient with vertebral artery dissection that rebled after being treated by proximal clipping. This is the second report of such a case. The results indicated that proximal clipping is not free from the risk of rebleeding, and a better alternative surgical technique should always be sought when treating vertebral artery dissections.
