The relation of cervical tumors to the V.A. seems not to have been considered before 1967, when Kriss and Schneider reported on the value of vertebral angiography in the treatment of cervical neurofibromas. Before this report, all published studies had been confined almost exclusively to lesions related to the extracranial carotid arteries in the neck. Carotid angiography had been performed to study carotid body tumors, glomus jugulare tumors, and primary and metastatic neoplasms, but there was almost no information and angiography in neurogenic cervical tumors, with the exception of a report by Putney etal. (1964) on a neurilemnoma of the vagus nerve compressing the carotid bifurcation. No data was available from vertebral angiography in cases of intra or paraspinal tumors.
