Infarcts of the cerebrum are generally classified by hemisphere (i.e., left vs. right), lobe (e.g., frontal lobe infarction), arterial distribution (e.g., INFARCTION, ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), and etiology (e.g., embolic infarction).Portal Vein: A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.Varicose Veins: Enlarged and tortuous VEINS.Cerebral Palsy: A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms.

The trigeminovascular system in humans: pathophysiologic implications for primary headache syndromes of the neural influences on the cerebral circulation. (1/468)

Primary headache syndromes, such as cluster headache and migraine, are widely described as vascular headaches, although considerable clinical evidence suggests that both are primarily driven from the brain. The shared anatomical and physiologic substrate for both of these clinical problems is the neural innervation of the cranial circulation. Functional imaging with positron emission tomography has shed light on the genesis of both syndromes, documenting activation in the midbrain and pons in migraine and in the hypothalamic gray in cluster headache. These areas are involved in the pain process in a permissive or triggering manner rather than as a response to first-division nociceptive pain impulses. In a positron emission tomography study in cluster headache, however, activation in the region of the major basal arteries was observed. This is likely to result from vasodilation of these vessels during the acute pain attack as opposed to the rest state in cluster headache, and represents the first convincing activation of neural vasodilator mechanisms in humans. The observation of vasodilation was also made in an experimental trigeminal pain study, which concluded that the observed dilation of these vessels in trigeminal pain is not inherent to a specific headache syndrome, but rather is a feature of the trigeminal neural innervation of the cranial circulation. Clinical and animal data suggest that the observed vasodilation is, in part, an effect of a trigeminoparasympathetic reflex. The data presented here review these developments in the physiology of the trigeminovascular system, which demand renewed consideration of the neural influences at work in many primary headaches and, thus, further consideration of the physiology of the neural innervation of the cranial circulation. We take the view that the known physiologic and pathophysiologic mechanisms of the systems involved dictate that these disorders should be collectively regarded as neurovascular headaches to emphasize the interaction between nerves and vessels, which is the underlying characteristic of these syndromes. Moreover, the syndromes can be understood only by a detailed study of the cerebrovascular physiologic mechanisms that underpin their expression.  (+info)

Cortical lesions in multiple sclerosis. (2/468)

Although previous studies have shown that the lesions of multiple sclerosis may involve the cerebral cortex, there is little published research on the prevalence and distribution of such lesions. Using neuropathological techniques and MRI, a series of studies has been undertaken in order to assess this, in particular to identify their relationship to cortical veins. A serial MRI study showed that the use of gadolinium proffered an increase in cortical lesion detection of 140% and showed that 26% of active lesions arose within or adjacent to the cortex. In a post-mortem study, MRI under-reported lesions subsequently analysed neuropathologically, particularly those arising within the cortex. In a further 12 cases examined, 478 cortical lesions were identified, of which 372 also involved the subcortical white matter. Seven different lesion types were identified; the majority arose within the territory of the principal cortical veins, whilst the remaining quarter arose within the territory of the small branch or superficial veins. Small cortical lesions are common in multiple sclerosis and are under-reported by MRI. Investigation of the cortical venous supply shows how such lesions may arise, and why the majority also involve the underlying white matter.  (+info)

Nitric oxide is the predominant mediator for neurogenic vasodilation in porcine pial veins. (3/468)

The innervation pattern and the vasomotor response of the potential transmitters in the porcine pial veins were investigated morphologically and pharmacologically. The porcine pial veins were more densely innervated by vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)- and neuropeptide Y-immunoreactive (I) fibers than were calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-I, choline acetyltransferase-I, Substance P (SP)-I, and NADPH diaphorase fibers. Serotonin (5-HT)-I fibers, which were not detected in normal control pial veins, were observed in isolated pial veins after incubation with 5-HT (1 microM). 5-HT-I fibers, however, were not observed when incubation with 5-HT was performed in the presence of guanethidine (1 microM), suggesting that 5-HT was taken up into the sympathetic nerves. In vitro tissue bath studies demonstrated that porcine pial veins in the presence of active muscle tone relaxed on applications of exogenous 5-HT, CGRP, SP, VIP, and sodium nitroprusside, whereas exogenous norepinephrine and neuropeptide Y induced only constrictions. Transmural nerve stimulation (TNS) did not elicit any response in pial veins in the absence of active muscle tone. However, in the presence of active muscle tone, pial veins relaxed exclusively on TNS. This tetrodotoxin-sensitive relaxation was not affected by receptor antagonists for VIP, CGRP, 5-HT, or SP but was blocked by L-glutamine (1 mM) and abolished by Nomega-nitro-L-arginine (10 microM) and Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (10 microM). The inhibition by L-glutamine, Nomega-nitro-L-arginine, and Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester was reversed by L-arginine and L-citrulline but not by their D-enantiomers. These results demonstrate that the vasomotor effect of all potential transmitters except 5-HT in the pial veins examined resembles that in cerebral arteries. Although porcine pial veins receive vasodilator and constrictor nerves, a lack of constriction on TNS suggests that the dilator nerves that release nitric oxide may play a predominant role in regulating porcine pial venous tone.  (+info)

Cerebral veins: comparative study of CT venography with intraarterial digital subtraction angiography. (4/468)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our objective was to compare the reliability of CT venography with intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in imaging cerebral venous anatomy and pathology. METHODS: In 25 consecutive patients, 426 venous structures were determined as present, partially present, or absent by three observers evaluating CT multiplanar reformatted (MPR) and maximum intensity projection (MIP) images. These results were compared with the results from intraarterial DSA and, in a second step, with the results of an intraobserver consensus. In addition, pathologic conditions were described. RESULTS: Using DSA as the standard of reference, MPR images had an overall sensitivity of 95% (specificity, 19%) and MIP images a sensitivity of 80% (specificity, 44%) in depicting the cerebral venous anatomy. On the basis of an intraobserver consensus including DSA, MPR, and MIP images (415 vessels present), the sensitivity/specificity was 95%/91% for MPR, 90%/100% for DSA, and 79%/91% for MIP images. MPR images were superior to DSA images in showing the cavernous sinus, the inferior sagittal sinus, and the basal vein of Rosenthal. Venous occlusive diseases were correctly recognized on both MPR and MIP images. Only DSA images provided reliable information of invasion of a sinus by an adjacent meningioma. CONCLUSION: CT venography proved to be a reliable method to depict the cerebral venous structures. MPR images were superior to MIP images.  (+info)

Cerebellar infarct caused by spontaneous thrombosis of a developmental venous anomaly of the posterior fossa. (5/468)

Spontaneous thrombosis of a posterior fossa developmental venous anomaly (DVA) caused a nonhemorrhagic cerebellar infarct in a 31-year-old man who also harbored a midbrain cavernous angioma. DVA thrombosis was well depicted on CT and MR studies and was proved at angiography by the demonstration of an endoluminal clot.  (+info)

Frontal bone windows for transcranial color-coded duplex sonography. (6/468)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The use of the conventional temporal bone window for transcranial color-coded duplex sonography (TCCS) often results in difficulties in obtaining angle-corrected flow velocity measurements of the A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery, the posterior communicating artery, and the midline venous vasculature because of the unfavorable insonation angle. The same applies to B-mode imaging of the frontal parenchyma. However, transorbital TCCS raises problems with the insonation of the orbital lens. To overcome these drawbacks, we studied the feasibility of frontal bone windows for TCCS examinations. METHODS: In 75 healthy volunteers (mean age, 45.3+/-17.0 years; age range, 17 to 77 years), the circle of Willis and the venous midline vasculature were insonated through a lateral and paramedian frontal bone window. Insonation quality of parenchymal structures (B-mode) was graded on a 3-point scale depending on the visibility of typical parenchymal landmarks. In a similar manner, the quality of the color-/Doppler-mode imaging of the arteries of the circle of Willis and the internal cerebral veins was assessed. In 15 patients (mean age, 62.7+/-13.7 years; age range, 33 to 83 years), the color-/Doppler-mode imaging quality of the intracranial vessels before and after application of an ultrasound contrast-enhancing agent was compared. RESULTS: B-mode insonation quality was optimal to fair in 73.3% of cases using the lateral and in 52.0% of cases using the paramedian frontal bone window, with defined parenchymal structures used as reference. Insonation quality decreased in those older than 60 years. In those younger than 60 years, angle-corrected flow velocity measurements of the A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery and the internal cerebral vein were possible in 73.6% and 60.0%, respectively. Contrast enhancement resulted in a highly significant improvement in the imaging quality of the intracranial vessels. CONCLUSIONS: The transfrontal bone windows offer new possibilities for TCCS examinations, although the insonation quality is inferior to the conventional temporal bone window in terms of failure of an acoustic window. This can be compensated for by application of an ultrasound contrast-enhancing agent.  (+info)

Color Doppler study of the venous circulation in the fetal brain and hemodynamic study of the cerebral transverse sinus. (7/468)

OBJECTIVES: To describe the venous circulation in the fetal brain; to describe the normal blood flow velocity waveform in the transverse sinus and to establish normal reference ranges for the second half of gestation. POPULATION: A total of 126 pregnant women with uncomplicated pregnancies at 20-42 weeks of gestation. METHODS: A combination of color-coded Doppler and two-dimensional real-time ultrasound was used to identify the main venous systems in the fetal brain. Blood flow velocity waveforms of the transverse sinus were obtained from a transverse plane of the head at the level of the cerebellum. RESULTS: A waveform could be obtained in the cerebral transverse sinus in 98% of the cases. The waveform obtained was triphasic with a forward systolic component, a forward early diastolic component and a lower forward component in late diastole. Reverse flow during atrial contraction was seen before 28 weeks and the diastolic flow increased with gestation thereafter. Pulsatility and resistance indices decreased and flow velocities increased in the transverse sinus throughout gestation. CONCLUSION: The venous circulation of the fetal brain can be identified by color Doppler. The gestational age-related decrease in resistance and increase in flow velocities suggest that hemodynamic studies of the cerebral transverse sinus might have clinical implications in studying compromised fetuses.  (+info)

Successful radiosurgical treatment of arteriovenous malformation accompanied by venous malformation. (8/468)

We present a patient with a rare cerebrovascular malformation consisting of a typical arteriovenous malformation (AVM) with a nidus and a venous malformation (VM) in a single lesion. The AVM component was successfully obliterated by radiosurgery, whereas the VM was completely preserved. Radiosurgery can be an effective treatment technique for treating this type of malformation because it allows targeted obliteration of the AVM yet carries a low risk of damaging the venous drainage toward and away from the VM.  (+info)

The great cerebral vein is one of the large blood vessels in the skull draining the cerebrum of the brain. It is also known as the "vein of Galen", named for its discoverer, the Greek physician Galen. However, it is not the only vein with this eponym.[clarification needed] The great cerebral vein is considered as one of the deep cerebral veins. Other deep cerebral veins are the internal cerebral veins, formed by the union of the superior thalamostriate vein and the superior choroid vein at the interventricular foramina. The internal cerebral veins can be seen on the superior surfaces of the caudate nuclei and thalami just under the corpus callosum. The veins at the anterior poles of the thalami merge posterior to the pineal gland to form the great cerebral vein. Most of the blood in the deep cerebral veins collects into the great cerebral vein. This comes from the inferior side of the posterior end of the corpus callosum and empties into the straight sinus located in the midline of the ...
INTRODUCTION: CT signs of acute ischemic stroke focus on parenchymal and arterial lesions. Little is known about venous changes. The aim of this study was to determine the value of decreased deep venous outflow as a predictor of acute ischemic stroke.. METHODS: Multimodal CT findings of 182 patients presenting for acute stroke evaluation within 4.5 hours of symptom onset were retrospectively reviewed for evidence of deep venous outflow changes. Interhemispheric symmetry of internal cerebral vein (ICV) opacification on CT angiogram was assessed by 3 raters. Discharge diagnosis, neurological assessment details, and radiographic data were extracted from electronic hospital records, and radiology reports.. RESULTS: Of 182 patients included in the study, 46 showed diminished ICV opacification (dICV) on the side of the expected ischemic lesion. Anterior circulation stroke was diagnosed in 87% of dICV cases, but in only 31% of subjects with ICV symmetry (sICV), suggesting a strong correlation of dICV ...

The Internal Cerebral Veins (vv. cerebri internæ; veins of Galen; deep cerebral veins) drain the deep parts of the hemisphere and are two in number; each is formed near the interventricular foramen by the union of the terminal and choroid veins. They run backward parallel with one another, between the layers of the tela chorioidea of the third ventricle, and beneath the splenium of the corpus callosum, where they unite to form a short trunk, the great cerebral vein; just before their union each receives the corresponding basal vein.. The terminal vein (v. terminalis; vena corporis striati) commences in the groove between the corpus striatum and thalamus, receives numerous veins from both of these parts, and unites behind the crus fornicis with the choroid vein, to form one of the internal cerebral veins. The choroid vein runs along the whole length of the choroid plexus, and receives veins from the hippocampus, the fornix, and the corpus callosum. ...
The treatment of cerebral vein thrombosis is anticoagulation. In the acute phase there is concern for hemorrhagic transformation. Most available data supports anticoagulation, nonetheless. In some patients with continued deterioration thrombolysis (systemic or catheter directed) can be tried. This is not standard treatment and complications are frequent.. Select patients with cerebral vein thrombosis should also receive other forms of treatment. Antibiotics, treatment of increased intracranial pressure and anti-epileptic medications are examples.. The duration of anticoagulation depends on the cause. It is similar to current recommendations for venous thromboembolism elsewhere. If the event was provoked, the treatment could be several months. A first unprovoked event should be treated longer. However, recurrent events or unprovoked cerebral vein thrombosis in the setting of severe thrombophilia may mandate long-term anticoagulation. Current guidelines (ACCP, AHA) suggest 3-6 months of treatment ...

Increased sensitivity of MR imaging of the brain has led to increased use of MR imaging to detect and assess malformations of the brain. Congenital malformations of the brain, including midline cerebral anomalies such as holoprosencephaly and posterior fossa anomalies, often are associated with venous anomalies (4-7). The venous system has been imaged with conventional angiography, but MR venography has increasingly been used to study the cerebral venous system. MR venography is noninvasive, does not involve ionizing radiation, and can be performed at the same time as MR imaging in comparatively short acquisition times. An understanding of the normal anatomy of the venous structure and its variations and the development of the venous system is crucial before studying the abnormal venous structure in malformations of the brain. Considerable data are available from conventional angiography studies regarding the intracranial veins and sinuses, but data regarding the capacity of MR venography in ...
Although crucial in regulating intracranial hydrodynamics, the cerebral venous system has been rarely studied because of its structural complexity and individual variations. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the organization of cerebral venous system in healthy adults. Phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) was performed in 18 healthy volunteers, in the supine position. Venous, arterial, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flows were calculated. We found heterogeneous individual venous flows and variable side dominance in paired veins and sinuses. In some participants, the accessory epidural drainage preponderated over the habitually dominant jugular outflow. The PC-MRI enabled measurements of venous flows in superior sagittal (SSS), SRS (straight), and TS (transverse) sinuses with excellent detection rates. Pulsatility index for both intracranial (SSS) and cervical (mainly jugular) levels showed a significant increase in pulsatile blood flow in jugular veins as compared with that ...
OBJECTIVE: Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is characterized by combined stenoses of the principal pathways of extracranial venous drainage, including the internal jugular veins (IJVs) and the azygous (AZY) vein, with development of collateral circles and insufficient drainage shown by increased mean transit time in cerebral magnetic resonance (MR) perfusion studies. CCSVI is strongly associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). This study evaluated the safety of CCSVI endovascular treatment and its influence on the clinical outcome of the associated MS. METHODS: Sixty-five consecutive patients with CCSVI, subdivided by MS clinical course into 35 with relapsing remitting (RR), 20 with secondary progressive (SP), and 10 with primary progressive (PP) MS, underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). Mean follow-up was 18 months. Vascular outcome measures were postoperative complications, venous pressure, and patency rate. Neurologic outcome measures were cognitive and motor ...

Early and accurate diagnosis of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is possible with the help of computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Empty Δ sign on postcontrast CT is present in only up to 30% of the cases. The role of CT venography is not yet established, but it is emerging as an effective modality for diagnosis of CVT. T2* MRI sequence is superior to spin echo in detecting CVT and small hemor rhages. MR venography is considered the technique of choice for diagnosis and follow-up of CVT, but in certain cases, MRI could be superior as it shows the thrombus itself and not just the absence of signal as seen on MR venography. Diffusion-weighted imaging is a relatively new MRI technique that is extremely sensitive in detecting acute arterial strokes and can distinguish cytotoxic and vasogenic edema. The presence of hyperintense signal on diffusion-weighted imaging in the occluded veins or sinuses at the time of diagnosis may predict a low rate of vessel recanalization.

Our model predicts that extra-cranial strictures cause increased pressure in the cerebral venous system. Specifically, there is a predicted pressure increase of about 10% in patients with a 90% stenoses. Pressure increases are related to significant flow redistribution with flow reduction of up to 70% in stenosed vessels and consequent flow increase in collateral pathways ...

Increases in brain activity are matched by increases in blood flow. Neurons require a huge amount of energy, but cant store it themselves, so must rely on blood to deliver the nutrients they need.. Two new studies help explain how blood flow is controlled.. The first study found blood appears to be stored in the blood vessels in the space between the brain and skull.. When the heart pumps blood into cranium, only a fraction of it flows into the capillaries that infuse the brain. The arteries in the cranium expand to store the excess blood. This expansion pushes out cerebrospinal fluid into the spinal column. When the heart relaxes, the drop in the pressure pushing blood through the arteries causes them to contract and the blood is pushed into the brains capillaries. This in turn forces used blood out of the brain into the veins between it and the skull. These cerebral veins expand to store this blood as it leaves the brain.. Crucially, the study shows that the flow of blood in the veins ...

Well, it turns out I was wrong. There was a family standing with their daughter and both my husband and I noticed that they were speaking English. Once we went into the hall, I noticed the mother looking our way several times, as if she knew us. She finally came over to us and called my husband by his name. It took us a minute or two, but we realized that not only did we know one another, but we both had quite a history with her. She had been on Shlichut (emissary sabbatical year) with her parents in our fair city of Toronto back when I was about 11 years old. She, stuck in a strange city unable to speak a word of English, struck up a warm and meaningful friendship with my husband who was about 14 at the time, and while she helped him learn Hebrew, he eased her transition into the city and the community. And if that wasnt enough, it turned out that her family were distant cousins of mine from my grandmothers side. I actually remember having them over for dinner. Whats funny is that they now ...

The emissary veins connect the extracranial venous system with the intracranial venous sinuses. They connect the veins outside the cranium to the venous sinuses inside the cranium. They drain from the scalp, through the skull, into the larger meningeal veins and dural venous sinuses. They are common in children. Emissary veins have an important role in selective cooling of the head. They also serve as routes where infections are carried into the cranial cavity from the extracranial veins to the intracranial veins. There are several types of emissary veins including posterior condyloid, mastoid, occipital and parietal emissary vein. There are also emissary veins passing through the foramen ovale, jugular foramen, foramen lacerum, and hypoglossal canal. Because the emissary veins are valveless, they are an important part in selective brain cooling through bidirectional flow of cooler blood from the evaporating surface of the head. In general, blood flow is from external to internal but the flow ...
The dural venous sinuses are the meningeal ducts or conduits, into which the venous blood from the cerebral veins flows. Located in the dura mater of the meninges, just over the brain surface, their function is to drain the oxygen-depleted blood, which comes from the brain via de cerebral veins, and excess cerobrospinal fluid into the internal jugular vein. There are several dural sinuses in the meninges; they are: superior sagittal sinus, inferior sagittal sinus, straight sinus, occipital sinus, sphenoparietal sinus, cavernous sinuses, confluence of sinuses, superior petrosal sinus, inferior petrosal sinus, transverse sinus, and sigmoid sinus. ...

We aimed to analyze the causes and predictors of death during the acute phase of CVT in the International Study on Cerebral Vein and Dural Sinus Thrombosis (ISCVT) to identify preventable or treatable causes. Methods - ISCVT is a multinational, prospective, observational study including 624 patients with CVT occurring between May 1998 and May 2001, in which 27 patients (4.3%) died during the acute phase, 21 (3.4%) within 30 days from symptom onset. Inclusion forms and a questionnaire assessing the causes of death were analyzed. A logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the predictors of death within 30 days from symptom onset of CVT. Results - Median time between onset of symptoms and death was 13 days and between diagnosis and death, 5 days. Causes of death were mainly ...
Using the large data set of this prospective multicenter international study, we described a distinctive clinical presentation of CVT in patients aged ≥65 years. CVT in such elderly patients rarely presents as isolated intracranial hypertension syndrome, but depressed consciousness and altered mental status are common. The prognosis of elderly patients was worse than that of younger patients: only 49% recovered completely, whereas 22% were dependent and 27% had died at the end of follow-up.. Strengths of this study include: (1) large sample size and diversity of participating hospitals in different countries and continents, which diminishes potential inclusion bias; (2) diagnostic confirmation by robust methods in all cases; (3) 98.7% completeness of follow-up. There are, however, some potential limitations: differential effect of age in case ascertainment and previous disability in elderly patients. It is possible that younger subjects reporting of headache were investigated sooner and more ...

One of the major regulators of cerebral venous outflow is posture, due to the gravitational gradient between the cerebral parenchymal veins and the base of the neck (␣30mmHg).2 The authors demonstrate a much larger change in blood flow volume in normal subjects compared to MS patients when the subjects go from a supine to an upright position. They find a change of 128ml/min and 56ml/min for the right and left sides, respectively, for MS patients. But they find a much larger change of 266ml/min and 105ml/min for their normal subjects. This result actually suggests the presence of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI). Possible causes include intra-luminal septum, membrane, and immobile valve affecting the hydrostatic pressure gradient in the upright position. The presence of such blockages in the extracranial and extravertebral cerebral veins has been proven also by using catheter venography, the unquestionable gold standard in medicine.3,4 ...

Venous air embolism is a dreaded condition particularly relevant to the field of nephrology. In the face of a favourable, air-to-blood pressure gradient and an abnormal communication between the atmosphere and the veins, air entrance into the circulation is common and can bring about venous air embolism. These air emboli can migrate to different areas through three major routes: pulmonary circulation, paradoxical embolism and retrograde ascension to the cerebral venous system. The frequent undesirable outcome of this disease entity, despite timely and aggressive treatment, signifies the importance of understanding the underlying pathophysiological mechanism and of the implementation of various preventive measures ...
The dura mater has been cut away so that the left cerebral hemisphere is visible lying inside the arachnoid membrane. The tentorium appears in the lower right part of the view and the transverse sinus is opened along its posterior border. The superior sagittal sinus has been opened by removing a strip of dura from its superficial wall. The superior cerebral veins ascend on the surface of the frontal and parietal lobes to empty into this sinus at various points. A number of anastomoses are present between these veins, none being particularly large in this specimen. In general the superior cerebral veins are divided into anterior and posterior groups. In this case there appear to be several anterior vessels, a group of large veins intermediate in position (overlying the region of the central sulcus) and several posterior veins (not visible in this view ...
One hypothesis would be via the stimulation of the parasympathetic afferent or sensory nerve fibres that innervate cerebral veins and venous sinuses. There is an extensive literature on the potential mechanisms of how parasympathetic stimulation, using the vagal nerve, could be anti-inflammatory. I suspect exploring the mechanisms of how venoplasty is anti-inflammatory is academic because the treatment effect is so small and is nowhere close to the effectiveness of licensed DMTs. Why would you have venoplasty if you could be on a more effective DMT?. I hope this will finally be the last we hear about CCSVI. I want to stress when you apply medical philosophical principles, CCSVI is not a disease; it does not fulfil the contemporary definition of being a disease entity. In short, there is not clinicopathological correlate that defines CCSVI as being a disease. A better descriptor for CCSVI would be that it is a meme.

On September 9th, 2010 our little Elliot Justin passed away after being born just one week earlier . When I was 37 weeks pregnant with him, he was diagnosed with an extremely rare birth defect, Vein of Galen Malformation. A vein in his brain had extra arteries coming off of it and the large structure was taxing his heart at an alarming rate. We were told after his first MRI that his chances of survival were very slim. When he was one week old he underwent surgery to block the excess arteries. Elliot sufferred a huge brain bleed during the surgery and passed away the next day.. We continue to treasure and remember the one week we had with Elliot. He was a peaceful and amazing soul. We wish that we could have watched him grow up. He will always be a part of our family, and we miss him as much today as the day that he died.. During Elliots one week with us, he was in Childrens Hospital NICU. The nurses and staff of the NICU were nothing short of amazing. They made it possible for us to hold him, ...

The Sons of Horus emissary, Argonis, was dispatched by Maloghurst on behalf of Horus, and he traveled on the storm eagle Sickle Blade. He was accompanied by Prophesius the astropath and Sota-Nu of the Dark Mechanicum, and he sought audience with Perturabo on the Iron Blood to demand why he invaded Tallarn. Perturabo, after revealing his irritation, stated that Tallarn was a valuable route to Terra. Argonis was dismissed, but he did not trust the primarchs word and contacted the Alpha Legion to investigate. After 12 days, the Alpha Legion agent and psyker, Jalen, posed as a serf and met with Argonis. Jalen stated that he did not know why the Iron Warriors were present at Tallarn, but he admitted that the Alpha Legion was on the planet before they arrived. Argonis leaves for the Sightless Warren, not trusting the Alpha Legion forces. During this time, Imperial Infocyte agent Iaeo, of Clade Vanus, follows Argonis and the Alpha Legion agents, interfering when she can to set Horuss forces against ...
The Jewish view on angels is derived from the Hebrew word malach, which means both emissary and angel. Basically, angels are Gcds messengers. Each one is created for a specific task, and ceases to exist when that task is completed. Some angels have ongoing missions and thus exist for eons; other exist for a fleeting moment. The Rambam, based on a careful examination of angelic verses throughout the Torah, organized the types of angels into a ten-level hierarchy. They are, to use a cytology analogy, the messenger RNA in the great cytoplasm of the universe. ...

Cranial dural arteriovenous fistulae have been classified into high- and low-risk lesions mainly based on the pattern of venous drainage. Those with leptomeningeal venous drainage carry a higher risk of an aggressive clinical presentation. Recently, it has been proposed that the clinical presentation should be considered as an additional independent factor determining the clinical course of these lesions. However, dural shunts with leptomeningeal venous drainage include a very wide spectrum of inhomogeneous lesions. In the current study, we correlated the clinical presentation of 107 consecutive patients harboring cranial dural arteriovenous shunts with leptomeningeal venous drainage, with their distinct anatomic and angiographic features categorized into eight groups based on the "DES" (Directness and Exclusivity of leptomeningeal venous drainage and features of venous Strain) concept. We found that among these groups, there are significant angioarchitectural differences, which are reflected by ...
Two very recent scientific papers have re-opened a debate on a vascular issue, chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), that apparently was sent in a corner by other trials and some Editorial hasty conclusions. The never-ending debate is still open and, perhaps, a one-year truce helped to calm waters and sort out, as by means of a sandbox, the situation from the vascular point of view. Before discussing why these recent papers have widened the path for CCSVI, some mind refreshing is mandatory, since the opinions are spread in all directions and a concise summary may help for those that are newcomers in this issue.... ...

There appears to be no link between chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency and multiple sclerosis (MS), according to new research published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).
Mironov3 first described 2 cases of selective transvenous embolization of DAVFs, including 1 superior sagittal sinus DAVF and 1 TSS-DAVF. Since then, several cases of intracranial DAVF shunting to a localized venous pouch adjacent to the major dural sinuses have been reported, which can be treated by selective transvenous embolization while preserving the sinus drainage from normal cerebral veins. These are generally thought to be special cases of intracranial DAVF.4 Of 140 cases of TSS-DAVFs, Caragine et al5 described 10 patients with TSS-DAVFs with a fistulous venous channel in a position parallel to the TSS (parallel venous channel). However, we often observed similar parasinusal venous pouches in many cases of intracranial DAVFs in our clinical practice. Piske et al6 investigated cerebral angiography in 40 intracranial DAVFs and found a dural sinus compartment in 12 of the 40 cases (30%). Nine of these cases could be treated by a selective transvenous embolization technique, preserving the ...

SUMMARY Evidence of damage to cerebral vein walls was sought in 70 cases of multiple sclerosis. Seventy control cases were also examined. The multiple sclerosis cases showed venous intramural fibrinoid deposition (7 %), recent haemorrhages (17%), old haemorrhages revealed by haemosiderin deposition (30%), thrombosis (6%) and thickened veins (19%). In all, 41% of all multiple sclerosis cases showed some evidence of vein damage. Occasional control cases showed haemosiderin deposition in the brain but, unlike the multiple sclerosis cases, these were diffuse and almost entirely related to coexistent cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease. Haemosiderin deposition was common in the substantia nigra and other pigmented nuclei in all cases. It is concluded that the cerebral vein wall in multiple sclerosis is subject to chronic inflammatory damage, which promotes haemorrhage and increased permeability, and constitutes a form of vasculitis ...

Of all pituitary adenomas, 6%-10% involve the cavernous sinus and are considered to be invasive. The clinical signs occur late. Cavernous sinus invasion increases the morbidity and mortality associated with surgical procedures. During MR imaging, the absence of invasion can be assumed if a venous compartment is visible between the tumour and the intracavernous internal cerebral artery (ICA).The content of the cavernous sinus is isointense and is interspersed with small foci of an increased signal intensity which correspond to a slow blood flow or the presence of fat; the ICA is easly identifiable because of its characteristic thin walls surrounding a lumen of a low signal intensity, which is reflective of a high-velocity flow void. After adminstration of a gadolinium contrast, the venous compartments are enhanced strongly, and, thus, the depiction of these structures becomes easy. On the other hand, total encasement of the intracavernous ICA is a very specific sign. Alternative criteria have to ...
Inter-rater agreement for CCSVI has never been systematically analysed so far, though scattered information is available from case-control studies. We found an unsatisfactory agreement for the diagnosis of CCSVI with an overall κ of 0.20. For Zambonis five criteria, the agreement was no higher than chance for two criteria (2 and 4), little more than slight for two criteria (3 and 5) and fair for one (criterion 1), according to Landis and Koch s classification.25 Agreement for CCSVI was 0.75 in a study that blindly evaluated 28 participants,19 and 0.79 in another case-control study.11 We found the worst agreement for criteria 2 and 4, whereas it was better for criteria involving a measurement (as for criterion 5) or a direct visualisation of a venous anatomical abnormality (as criterion 3). This seems to indicate that criteria 2 and 4 are more prone to subjective interpretation. Criterion 2 was also the most critical in the study by Tsivgoulis et al,26 together with criterion 5, though their ...

Abstract: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system with not yet completely understood pathogenesis. The so called "chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) theory" has recently emerged, supporting the concept of a cerebrospinal venous drainage impairment as the cause of MS. Since the first publication on this topic with a claimed 100% specificity and sensitivity of the condition for MS diagnosis, CCSVI theory has generated a scientific and mass media debate with a ...
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) occurs when a blood clot forms in the brains venous sinuses. This prevents blood from draining out of the brain. As a result, blood cells may break and leak blood into the brain tissues, forming a hemorrhage. This chain of events is part of a stroke that can occur in adults and children of all ages.

As a result, blood cells may break and leak blood into the brain tissues, forming a hemorrhage. This chain of events is part of a stroke that can occur in adults and children of all ages.
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a rare clinicopathological entity. The incidence of CVST in children and neonates has been reported to be as high as 7 cases per million people, whereas in adults the incidence is 3-4 cases per million. The predisposing factors to this condition are mainly genetic and acquired prothrombotic states and infection. The clinical picture of CVST is nonspecific, highly variable, and can mimic several other clinical conditions. Diagnosis of CVST is established with the implementation of neuroimaging studies, especially MR imaging and venography. Identification and elimination of the underlying cause, anticoagulation, proper management of intracranial hypertension, and anticonvulsant prophylaxis constitute cornerstones of CVST treatment. Newer treatment strategies such as endovascular thrombolysis and decompressive craniectomy have been recently used in the treatment of patients with CVST with variable success rates. Further clinical research must be performed to
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in children is increasingly recognized as diagnostic tools and clinical awareness has improved. It is a multifactorial disease where prothrombotic risk factors and predisposing clinical conditions usually in combination constitute the underlying etiology. Clinical features range from headache, seizures to comatose state. Although symptomatic treatment involving control of infections, seizures and intracranial hypertension is uniform, use of anticoagulation and local thrombolytic therapy is still controversial. Morbidity and mortality can be significant and long-term neurological sequelae include developmental delay, sensorimotor and visual deficits and epilepsy.

Central venous sinus thrombosis (CVT) and venous cerebral infarction are important differentials for the causes of headache or seizure in the young person, particularly in the young woman who is/has recently been pregnant. It is probably the most rare form of stroke, but - when it happens - the patient usually will end up in ICU, and the critical care trainee will probably see more of this than any other specialty. This has come up in Question 26 from the second paper of 2015. Dural sinus thrombosis in that question was associated with pregnancy (as typically they are) and the question could easily be shoved into the O&G section, but the specific information requested from the candidates (outline the management priorities, etc) was more neurological/neurosurgical in nature.
The medical fraternity is divided over the theory whether chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency is linked with multiple sclerosis. Here s what the latest research says.
There has been a great deal of excitment, and rightly so, over the work of Dr. Zamboni and others using venous stents and balloons to open drainage routes of the brain and improve the symptoms of many multiple sclerosis patients. He attributes the cause of MS to chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency. The role of venous…
Venous thrombosis may occur in any or all of the following venous structures: the venous sinuses, superficial cortical veins, or the deep venous system. Typically, superficial cortical vein thrombosis is only seen in the seen in the setting of venous sinus thrombosis, and thrombosis of the deep venous system is relatively rare (albeit very serious). Approximately 1% of all strokes occur secondary to venous sinus thrombosis, and the most frequently thrombosed sinuses are the superior sagittal sinus, followed by the transverse, sigmoid and cavernous sinuses. There are numerous conditions associated with venous sinus thromboses and broadly speaking, these tend to be divided into septic or non-septic etiologies. One fourth of cases are of unknown cause. It is common for hemorrhage to be present within areas of venous infarction, whereas it is relatively uncommon to occur with arterial occlusion and infarction. In general, hemorrhagic cerebral infarctions are classified as primary or secondary with ...
The treatment of type II fistulas has previously been discussed.4 As it seems that retrograde drainage produces intracranial hypertension in 20% of the patients, type II fistulas consequently must be considered as potentially dangerous. Asymptomatic patients have to be examined repeatedly (once a year) with neurological examination including ophthalmoscopy, and Doppler studies. We think that MRI could play a part as a method of screening patients with benign intracranial hypertension. However, our own experience in this field is too limited to draw any firm conclusions. MR angiography will probably be a reliable examination in the future. Nevertheless, its capacity to precisely analyse the fistula venous drainage and the cerebral venous drainage will remain certainly less accurate than selective or hyperselective angiography. Whatever the method, the competition of the venous drainage of the fistula and of the brain needs to be clearly analysed to indicate the therapeutic decisions.. Due to the ...
Dural venous sinus thrombosis is a rare and potentially devastating disease. Several predisposing factors exist, including oral contraceptive therapy and colitis. First-line therapy consists of systemic anticoagulation. If first-line therapies fail, more aggressive endovascular therapies may be performed. We report our initial experience with the Solitaire FR device for treatment of refractory symptomatic dural venous sinus thrombosis.. ...
In many intracranial disease states, monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) is essential to evaluate response to the therapeutic measures as well as estimation of prognosis. Although, direct estimation of ICP is reliable, it is invasive and not possible in all patients. Transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography is a bedside and noninvasive technique that provides reliable and real-time information about cerebral hemodynamics. We present a case of extensive and progressive cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in which TCD served as an excellent tool for monitoring ICP and the serial observations correlated closely with clinical status and ophthalmological findings.
Neuropathological findings in children who had died of cerebral arteriovenous malformation under 6 years of age were contrasted with those of children aged 6 to 15 years. In all subjects, the abnormalities were more marked in the shunting vessels and veins distal to the arteriovenous shunt than in the arteries. Fibrous thickening, calcification an adherent thrombus of vessel wall, and gliosis and haemosiderin in contiguous neural tissue were more common in the older than the younger children. Children less than 1 week old with vein of Galen malformations presented with congestive heart failure and "watershed" cerebral infarction; most of those over one week old had hydrocephalus and venous thrombosis with haemorrhagic infarction.. ...
Increased recognition of the thrombogenic potential of hormonal vaginal rings may promote earlier venous imaging and result in better clinical outcomes.
Central Nervous System Venous Angioma: A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the bodys venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.
A case where interventional neuroradiology came to the rescue…. Success in practice is measured by favourable outcomes in each patient, one at a time. There are so many stories. That is what makes medicine so interesting. The human drama plays out fairly quickly in the operating room or post-treament, compared with many business endeavours. Some of my favourite stories relate to the children I have treated. For instance, I think of children with vein of Galen malformations that I have followed over time. One story always serves to remind me why I do what I do. A boy with a vein of Galen malformation and severe heart failure was brought to me immediately after birth, and I was able to cure him of his condition. Twelve years old now, he is one of the top performers in his class, and quite a comedian. I always look forward to his visits, as he is a living testament to the viability of this field and the role of neurointervention in saving lives or restoring quality of life.. What are the ...
Venous access is obtained from the groin through the femoral vein. The catheter will be advanced into the veins in the neck and chest. Angiographic images will be taken of the extracranial venous system as well as the azygous vein. These images will be used to confirm CCSVI. Venoplasty is performed by inserting an additional catheter with a balloon at the tip. The balloon will be inflated to open the vessel. Once dilation of the vessel is confirmed, the venous sheath will be removed and manual compression applied to the groin access ...
Results Aggressive clinical symptoms were observed in 31% of patients and benign features were noted in 69% of DAVFs. Conventional MRI could identify the FA in only 27% of patients. SWI accurately located 75% of all the FAs in 23 patients. However, SWI failed to identify DAVFs in three patients. CVR was detected in 89.6% of all aggressive DAVFs. The accuracy of SWI to identify CVE was 100% and the extent and degree correlated with DSA observations. ...
A portion of nasal venous blood is indeed diverted to intracranial veins via direct communication between the ophthalmic veins, pterygoid plexus, and cavernous sinus, but the other portion of blood is drained extracranially by facial veins directly into the IJV. Stated differently, the cavernous sinus receives only a portion of xenon-enriched blood from the nasal space, but the IJV collects almost all the blood from it. Therefore, a steady concentration of xenon in the IJV 10 min after intranasal application in volunteers is more a reflection of saturation of the nasal mucosa and nasal (not cranial) venous vascular beds with xenon. The actual concentration of xenon in the cavernous sinus is probably less than 500 nl/ml because the latter collects only a portion of nasal venous blood. Furthermore, although the cavernous sinus does communicate with basilar and superficial cortical veins, it is a "blood collector" that is ultimately drained into the IJV, and retrograde flow of xenon-containing ...
CDMS is strongly associated with CCSVI, a scenario that has not previously been described, characterised by abnormal venous haemodynamics determined by extracranial multiple venous strictures of unknown origin. The location of venous obstructions plays a key role in determining the clinical course o …
Although user-pay invasive, unregulated procedures are available to those who seek them, this study is the first to describe the prevalence and predictors of one such procedure, the liberation procedure among people with MS. The purpose of this study was to understand why older MS patients chose to have the liberation procedure in order to target and tailor health information for those patients who may be more likely to undertake such interventions. We used a mixed methods approach to secondary data analysis from Canadian national survey data. Using an age, gender and education-matched, case-control algorithm, we created a 3:1 sample of no procedure and procedure. Both groups (with and without the procedure) were on average about 63 years old with 1.5 years of post-secondary education, with women outnumbering men, typical of MS demographics in general (3.48:1 full database; 3.67:1 no procedure: 4.27:1 procedure). Our findings may be applicable to others with chronic disabling ...
Should the superior petrosal vein be sacrificed during surgery for trigeminal neuralgia? What are the implications of its obliteration?
Hemangioma, NOS (9120/0) and cavernous hemangioma (9121/0) arising in the dura and parenchyma of the brain/CNS are reportable.. Venous angiomas (9122/0) are not reportable wherever they arise. The primary site for venous hemangioma arising in the brain is blood vessel (C490). The combination of 9122/0 and C490 is not reportable. This is a venous abnormality. Previously called venous angiomas, these are currently referred to as a developmental venous anomalies (DVA).. ...

ABSTRACT: Background: The current definition of multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory/degenerative disease of central nervous system with focal demyelination around cerebral veins. In 2007 a theory was proposed that demonstrates an alteration of cerebral venous flow in patients with multiple sclerosis
AVMs can be found anywhere in the brain and may extend from the outer surface to the inner cavities of the brain (ventricles).. In the rare Vein of Galen Malformation, an AVM involves one of the large veins of the brain. The ordinary flow of the fluid in the brain ventricles (cerebro-spinal fluid) is interrupted. The pressure of this fluid is increased. This may cause enlargement of the ventricles ("hydrocephalus"). Occasionally brain and spinal cord AVMs may also be found in association with skin lesions (angiomas). ...
The specificity of computed tomography (CT) for subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is very high. However, physicians should be aware of rare false positive findings, also referred to as pseudo-SAH. We present an unusual case in which such a finding was caused by chronic hypoxaemia. A 37-year-old male patient presented with headaches. His CT-scan showed multiple confluent subarachnoid hyperattenuations, which mimicked SAH. However, the headache was chronic and had no features typical for SAH. The patient suffered from severe chronic hypoxaemia due to congenital heart failure. On CT-angiography diffuse intracranial vessel proliferation was found and laboratory results revealed a highly raised level of haematocrit, which had both probably developed as compensatory mechanisms. A combination of these findings explained the subarachnoid hyperdensities. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed no signs of SAH and visualized hypoxaemia in cerebral veins. A diagnosis of pseudo-SAH was made. The patients symptoms

  • Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI or CCVI) is a term developed by Italian researcher Paolo Zamboni in 2008 to describe compromised flow of blood in the veins draining the central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Zamboni hypothesized that it played a role in the cause or development of multiple sclerosis (MS). Zamboni also devised a procedure which was termed by the media as "liberation procedure" or "liberation therapy", involving venoplasty (or stenting) of certain veins in an attempt to improve blood flow. (wikipedia.org)
  • The rate of the cerebral blood flow in the adult is typically 750 milliliters per minute, representing 15% of the cardiac output. (wikipedia.org)
  • A further cause can be a reduction in cerebral spinal fluid pressure which can create a low pressure in the subarachnoid space, pulling the arachnoid away from the dura mater and leading to a rupture of the blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cavernous sinus receives blood via the superior and inferior ophthalmic veins through the superior orbital fissure and from superficial cortical veins, and is connected to the basilar plexus of veins posteriorly. (wikipedia.org)
  • One of the goals of blood clot prevention is to limit venous stasis as this is a significant risk factor for forming blood clots in the deep veins of the legs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Without prophylactic interventions, the calculated incidence of clot formation in the lower leg veins after surgery is: 22% for neurosurgery 26% for abdominal surgery 45% for 60% in orthopedic surgery 14% for gynecologic surgery As the population of the US ages, the development of blood clots is becoming more common. (wikipedia.org)
  • From the surgeon's examination, they concluded that the cause of death was from a large amount of blood that gathered around the chilic vein and the veins of the liver. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vein grafting is a surgical technique in which a vein(s) is removed and grafted to another blood vessel to bypass a blockage, repair a blood vessel or connect blood vessels of a tissue or digit graft to recipient blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Free vein grafts are also used frequently during reconstructive surgery in situations where recipient vessels are damaged or are otherwise inadequate and require bridging vein grafts to connect graft and recipient blood vessels or to restore vessel length in situations where recipient vessels have been surgically debrided. (wikipedia.org)
  • Integral vein grafts refer to those blood vessels located within a flap or digit graft that are micro-surgically connected to recipient blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • He proposed that reducing the cerebral blood flow would reduce the frequency and duration of seizure activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • He later developed this approach in combination with other methods for reduction of cerebral blood flow, such as transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • Usually, a capillary bed separates arteries from veins, which protects the veins from the higher blood pressures that occur in arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • These valves are now understood to prevent retrograde flow of blood within the veins, thus facilitating antegrade flow of blood towards the heart, though Fabricius did not understand their role at that time. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is used to administer medication or fluids that are unable to be taken by mouth or would harm a smaller peripheral vein, obtain blood tests (specifically the "central venous oxygen saturation"), and measure central venous pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • If a central line infection is suspected in a person, blood cultures are taken from both the catheter and a vein elsewhere in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is thought this risk stems from activation of clotting substances in the blood by trauma to the vein during placement. (wikipedia.org)
  • These processes include alterations in cerebral blood flow and the pressure within the skull. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cerebral microbleeds (CMB) which are deposits of hemosiderin that initially accumulate around vessels and can appear as early as 6 months post radiation therapy and continue to increase in number over time, however their vascular etiology is unknown. (escholarship.org)

  • Role of endovascular embolization for trigeminal neuralgia related to cerebral vascular malformation. (semanticscholar.org)
  • Professor Paolo Zamboni, a vascular surgeon from the University of Ferrara, Italy, found a link between pressure in the veins, iron deposition, and ulceration in venous disease of the legs. (medindia.net)
  • The wall of the vein can be damaged during the procedure and, in some cases, the emboli can become dislodged and travel through the vascular system. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is not surprising given the similar anatomy and physiology between types of vein grafts and given that vascular graft experience similar stresses, including the physical trauma of harvesting and handling, post-harvest ischemia, oxidative stress, reperfusion injury and adaptive stress in the new post grafting environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, someone's own vein (autograft) is the preferred graft material (or conduit) for a vascular bypass, but other types of grafts such as polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon), polyethylene terephthalate (Dacron), or a different person's vein (allograft) are also commonly used. (wikipedia.org)
  • They are divided into techniques including reperfusion of the ischemic tissue (transient focal cerebral ischemia) and those without reperfusion (permanent focal cerebral ischemia). (wikipedia.org)
