What is vertebrobasilar insufficiency?

Vertebrobasilar insufficiency is the decreased blood flow to the back of the brain, where two vertebral arteries join to become the basilar artery. The basilar artery is the main blood supply for the brain stem; cerebellum; occipital lobe; medial temporal lobe; and thalmus.
