(3) Dehiscent sigmoid plate (86.4%) was the most frequent lesion on the symptomatic side, followed by lateral sinus stenosis (55.8%), high jugular bulb (47.1%), sigmoid sinus diverticulum (34.3%), jugular bulb diverticulum (13.6%), dehiscent jugular bulb (13.6%), large emissary vein (4.1%), sinus thrombosis (1.2%), and petrosquamosal sinus (0.8%).
Thus far, previous studies on the incidence of these anomalies and variants of venous PT have notable limitations; they used small sample sizes and did not include several recently described venous PT anomalies, such as a dehiscent sigmoid plate and petrosquamosal sinus.
No significant difference was found in the incidences of sinus thrombosis ( P = 0.249) and petrosquamosal sinus ( P = 1.000) between the symptomatic and asymptomatic sides.{Table 2}
[sup][2],[27] The vascular anomalies and variants detected in this study are all factors potentially capable of changing normal perfusion (such as a dehiscent sigmoid plate, lateral sinus stenosis, sigmoid sinus diverticulum or jugular bulb diverticulum, large emissary vein, petrosquamosal sinus, and sinus thrombosis) or sound transmission (such as a dehiscent sigmoid plate and dehiscent jugular bulb).
