Dural venous sinus stenting in idiopathic intracranial hypertension: let’s try to understand something more

Key point: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), also known as pseudotumor cerebri, is a syndrome characterized by increased intracranial pressure, with non-specific neurological symptoms and a normal neuroimaging, except for findings occurring with chronic increased intracranial pressure of any cause. Diagnostic criteria have been identified by Dandy and Smith. IIH occurs with a frequency of about 1 Read more about Dural venous sinus stenting in idiopathic intracranial hypertension: let’s try to understand something more[…]

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[…]
