Two cases had recorded fever, three had focal signs, three had confusion, three had meningism, three had convulsions and one had a recorded history of dehydration that poses a risk for dural venous
Venous infarction results from thrombosis of dural venous
sinuses and/ or cortical veins.
MRI findings in lumbar puncture headache syndrome: abnormal dural-meningeal and dural venous
In about half the cases in which epidural abscesses are seen, dural venous
thrombophlebitis can occur.
Raised ICP may be caused by a number of reasons, the commonest being an intracranial space-occupying lesion (eg a brain tumour or abscess), intracranial haemorrhage (stroke, trauma), hydrocephalus, meningitis, dural venous
sinus thrombosis or idiopathic (pseudotumour cerebri).
It has been postulated that SDH development, in the presence of dural prostate metastasis, might be secondary to dural venous
obstruction, hemorrhagic effusion (due to dural metastasis) or an angiodesmoplastic response of the dura to the invasion by carcinomatous cells.
The guidelines include an algorithm for diagnosing and managing cerebral venous thromboembolism (CVT), which is caused by a clot in the dural venous
sinuses, veins that drain blood from the brain toward the heart.
Rheolytic catheter thrombolysis of dural venous
sinus thrombosis: A case series.
Pathologically, no tumor deposits were found within dural venous
sinuses since they often are involved subsequent to bony metastases.
Nine new chapters address increased interest in the field and provide in-depth focus on a range of new topics including normal cerebrovascular variants, non-shunting cerebrovascular malformations, the endovascular aspects of cerebrovascular disease in pregnancy, neurocritical care management of endovascular patients, anesthetic management of neurointerventional procedures, and the diagnosis and management of cerebral vasculitis, dural venous
sinus thrombosis, pediatric cerebrovascular disease, and uncommon and genetic cerebrovascular diseases.
On day six magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography excluded acute infarction and dural venous
sinus thrombosis but showed features suggestive of both intracranial hypotension and cortical oedema in the posterior regions of the brain (Figure 1).
Brain abscesses, subdural empyema, spinal epidural abscesses, and septic thrombi of the cavernous and dural venous
sinuses should be surgically debrided if possible.
