Raja Sekhar Katikireddi, Siva Nageswara Rao Sundara Setty.

Objectives: The aim of the present study is to know the incidence of double foramen transversarium in the dried cervical vertebra and its morphological importance.
Methods: A total number of 100 dried cervical vertebrae were collected from the department of anatomy to investigate the double foramen transversarium. The occurrence of double foramina was observed on both sides.
Results: In the present study out of 100 cervical vertebrae, noticed double foramen transversarium in 3 (3%) vertebrae, among them double foramen seen unilaterally in 2 (2%) vertebrae and bilaterally in 1(1%) vertebra.
Conclusion: In the present study observed Unilateral double foramen transversarium was more common than bilateral. This anatomical knowledge is clinically important since the course of the vertebral artery may be distorted in such situations. This study may useful to neurosurgeons and radiologists.
