Sažetak
We hypothesize that differences in ultrasound characteristics of vertebral arteries between men and women are present. The aim of this research was to non-invasively compare morphology and hemodynamics of vertebral arteries in men and women. We examined 155 subjects by ultrasound, using a linear 7.5 MHz probe (Aloka Prosound SSD-5500). Measurements were obtained at V2 segment of vertebral arteries (VAs). The set criteria were: VA diameter 2-4mm, systolic mean blood flow velocities (MBFV) of 0.35-0.70m/s, normal resistance pattern. We investigated the following parameters: diameters of VAs, MBFVs in VAs, sum of VA diameters, sum of MBFVs, diameter o the narrower and wider VA, and age. Our results showed that there were 68 men and 87 women ; 88 with a dominant left VA (56% of men and 58% of women), 11 (7%) showed no dominance. Men had both VAs wider, and a larger diameter of the “wider” VA. There were no differences in MBFVs between men and women. This led us to a conclusion that left VA was wider in both sexes. There was no difference in MBFVs among sexes. Men had wider VAs than women.
