Vertebral artery loop is a congenital or acquired anomaly. Vertebral artery loops are incidentally diagnosed during evaluation of neck problems and trauma. We aimed to present the incidence of VA loops using magnetic resonance angiography in consecutive patients and discuss epidemiological data including the gender, age, location, signs and symptoms, treatment approaches and outcomes of VA loops via analyzing literature.
