After selective thrombolysis and thrombectomy, superior sagittal sinus
Superior sagittal sinus
thrombosis in a child with nephrotic syndrome.
Behcet's disease: presentation with sagittal sinus
thrombosis diagnosed noninvasively.
It is suggested that a fragment of clot may be carried to superior sagittal sinus
from pelvic veins by way of vertebral venous system, these veins being devoid of valves.
Thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus
was caused by a platelet-fibrin thrombus.
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan performed on the eighth day (Figure 2) showed nearcomplete resolution of the lesions seen on CT at admission and also excluded superior sagittal sinus
Transarterial intravenous coil embolization of fistula involving the superior sagittal sinus
CSF pressure = Resistance to CSF outflow x m x CSF outflow rate + sagittal sinus
A computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging performed the next morning showed blood clots in the brain, with complete occlusion of the superior sagittal sinus
vein, and cerebral herniation.
The blood cultures and LP were negative but the MRI showed a sagittal sinus
thrombosis was among the possibilities mentioned.
The empty delta sign, pathognomonic of sagittal sinus
thrombosis, can be seen sometimes on contrast CT.
