A pilot study and novel angiographic classification for superior sagittal sinus stenting in patients with non-thrombotic intracranial venous occlusive disease

Raper DM, Buell TJ, Ding D, Pomeraniec IJ, Crowley RW, Liu KC. Key points: The majority of stenosis of an intracranial dural sinus, cause of intracranial hypertension (IIH) or chronic headache without IIH, involve the transverse (TS) and sigmoid (SS) sinuses. However, a subset of patients with intracranial venous occlusive disease (VOD) has SSS stenosis with Read more about A pilot study and novel angiographic classification for superior sagittal sinus stenting in patients with non-thrombotic intracranial venous occlusive disease[…]

Stenting of the Lateral Sinus in Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension According to the Type of Stenosis

Lenck S1, Vallée F, Labeyrie MA, Touitou V, Saint-Maurice JP, Guillonnet A, Tantot A, Crassard I, Bernat AL, Houdart E. Pubmed BACKGROUND: Over the past decade, stenting of lateral sinus stenosis has been used to treat idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Two types of stenoses have been identified: extrinsic and intrinsic. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study Read more about Stenting of the Lateral Sinus in Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension According to the Type of Stenosis[…]

Cerebral venous thrombosis

Piazza G1. Case Presentation: A 20-year-old woman presented with 24 hours of severe left-sided headache associated with nausea, photophobia, and phonophobia. She was previously healthy and was taking only an oral contraceptive pill. On physical examination, she was tachycardic to 110 bpm, normotensive with a blood pressure of 108/64 mm Hg, and appeared uncomfortable. Neurological Read more about Cerebral venous thrombosis[…]

Endovascular treatments for cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.

Qiu Z1, Sang H, Dai Q, Xu G. Abstract Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is an uncommon but potentially fatal condition. CVST usually occurs young adults with a female predominance. The current mainstay for treating CVST is anticoagulation with heparin. However, more aggressive interventions, endovascular treatment as an example, may be indicated in selected patients Read more about Endovascular treatments for cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.[…]

Cerebral Sinus Thrombosis

Agrawal K1, Burger K2, Rothrock JF3. Abstract BACKGROUND: Although cerebral venous thrombosis/cerebral sinus thrombosis (CVT/CST) remains a relatively uncommon cause of stroke and other neurologic complications, the widespread availability of noninvasive brain imaging has led to an increase in its diagnosis. PURPOSE: Through a review and description of its epidemiology, clinical features and treatment, to Read more about Cerebral Sinus Thrombosis[…]

Cerebral venous thrombosis

Coutinho JM1. Abstract Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is an uncommon cause of stroke that mainly affects young adults and children. In contrast to venous thromboembolism, women are affected three times more often than men. Baseline symptoms can vary considerably between patients, but most present with headache, seizures, or focal neurological deficits. Patients can be diagnosed Read more about Cerebral venous thrombosis[…]
