Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is the presence of acute thrombosis (a blood clot) in the dural venous sinuses, which drain blood from the brain. Symptoms may include headache, abnormal vision, any of the symptoms of stroke such as weakness of the face and limbs on one side of the body, and seizures. The diagnosis is usually by computed tomography (CT/CAT scan) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) employing radiocontrast to demonstrate obstruction of the venous sinuses by thrombus. Treatment is with anticoagulants (medication that suppresses blood clotting), and rarely thrombolysis (enzymatic destruction of the blood clot). Given that there is usually an underlying cause for the disease, tests may be performed to look for these. The disease may be complicated by raised intracranial pressure, which may warrant surgical intervention such as the placement of a shunt. Nine in ten people with sinus thrombosis have a headache; this tends to worsen over the period of several days, but may also ...
Intracranial complications of sinusitis are rare but life threatening. We present a case of a 17-year-old woman with sinusitis who deteriorated over the course of 12 days from subdural empyema and global purulent cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. The patient was managed with surgery and mechanical thrombectomy utilizing a novel stent anchor with mobile aspiration technique, in which a Trevo stent retriever (Stryker) was anchored in the superior sagittal sinus (SSS) while a 5 MAX ACE reperfusion catheter (Penumbra) was passed back and forth from the SSS to the sigmoid sinus with resultant dramatic improvement in venous outflow. The patient was extubated on postoperative day 3 and was discharged with minimal lower extremity weakness on postoperative day 11. This is the first report using the Trevo stent retriever for sinus thrombosis. It is important to keep these rare complications in mind when evaluating patients with oral and facial infections. ...
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.

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.
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) usually is taken care of by medical management or neuro-interventional vascular techniques. Some cases of CVST may take a malignant course if the intracranial pressure increases excessively. This increase in pressure is because of oedema in brain tissue due to impediment in venous return and/or intracerebral haemorrhage. Neurosurgical experience has shown remarkable recovery in these moribund patients if appropriate surgical intervention is done within reasonable time. Emergent decompressive craniotomy or other neurosurgical interventions are the only appropriate treatment in these malignant forms of CVST to prevent mortality and severe morbidity.

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.
Summary: We present a novel application of a transvascular rheolytic thrombectomy system in the treatment of symptomatic dural sinus thrombosis in a 54-year-old woman with somnolence and left-sided weakness. The diagnosis of bilateral transverse and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis was made and the patient was treated with anticoagulant therapy. After an initial period of improvement, she became comatose and hemiplegic 8 days after presentation. After excluding intracerebral hemorrhage by MR imaging, we performed angiography and transfemoral venous thrombolysis with a hydrodynamic thrombectomy catheter, followed by intrasinus urokinase thrombolytic therapy over the course of 2 days. This technique resulted in dramatic sinus thrombolysis and near total neurologic recovery. Six months after treatment, the patient showed mild cognitive impairment and no focal neurologic deficit. Our preliminary experience suggests that this technique may play a significant role in the endovascular treatment of ...

OBJECTIVE To explore the controversial issue of anticoagulant therapy and indications for surgery in association with severe sinus thrombosis. METHODS During the last 4 years, we have treated three patients with severe sinus thrombosis of the dural sinuses. All three patients received systemic anticoagulant therapy and, after experiencing neurological deterioration, underwent open thrombectomy and local thrombolysis. After the operation, aggressive intensive care was given and included cerebral perfusion monitoring, barbiturate administration, hyperventilation, and osmotherapy. The treatment was guided by repeated neuroradiological investigations. RESULTS All three patients returned to their normal lives. CONCLUSION Intracranial sinus thrombosis, even in the worst neurological state, should be treated aggressively. A cornerstone in treatment is systemic anticoagulant therapy and repeated neuroradiological studies. When, despite adequate anticoagulant therapy and intensive care, neurological
Increased recognition of the thrombogenic potential of hormonal vaginal rings may promote earlier venous imaging and result in better clinical outcomes.
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.
Cerebral venous thrombosis is rare and often under diagnosed in children with nephrotic syndrome. MRI with venography is an essential tool in its diagnosis. Both early diagnosis and the commencement of anticoagulation are paramount for a good outcome. An 8 year old boy diagnosed with steroid dependent nephrotic syndrome with 12 relapses in the 2 years since diagnosis, presents and is admitted for another relapse following an intercurrent illness. Symptoms and signs at the time of admission are lethargy, cough, vomiting, abdominal pain, headache, generalised oedema and ascites. He is treated with high dose steroids and goes into remission within the next 3 days. However, he continues to complain of a headache not improved with analgesia. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) followed by venography are performed and the diagnosis of a dural sinus thrombosis is made. Initial neurology is intact, however, he develops signs of raised intracranial pressure and requires transfer to a tertiary centre. He is ...

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 diagnosis of CVST has traditionally been made with conventional angiography (DSA).13,19 More recently, DSA has been superseded by MR imaging techniques as the method of choice. MR imaging with MR venography is now commonly considered the noninvasive "gold standard" in diagnosing thrombosis of the cerebral venous sinuses2,5,7,8,20-23 and also dominates the diagnostic arms in large international trials.6 However, because CT is still the technique of choice to rule out intracranial hemorrhage in most institutions, it is tempting to assess a CVST by using the same technique. Therefore, we propose MDCTA as an alternative diagnostic measure in CVST, which is faster, more widely accessible, and more cost-effective than MR imaging.. With the development of helical CT technology, CTA offered a new imaging technique to visualize the cerebral vascular circulation. CTA allowed the visualization of the cerebral venous structures10,11,24-27 and has been shown to have a high sensitivity for depicting the ...

Thrombolytic drugs are widely used for the management of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis patients. Several in vitro models have been developed to study clot lytic activity of thrombolytic drugs, but all of these have certain limitations. There is need of an appropriate model to check the clot lytic efficacy of thrombolytic drugs. In the present study, an attempt has been made to design and develop a new model system to study clot lysis in a simplified and easy way using a thrombolytic drug, streptokinase. Whole blood from healthy individuals (n = 20) was allowed to form clots in a pre-weighed sterile microcentrifuge tubes; serum was removed and clot was weighed. After lysis by streptokinase fluid was removed and remnants of clot were again weighed along with the tube. Percentage of Clot lysis was calculated on the basis of the weight difference of microcentrifuge tubes obtained before and after clot lysis. There was a significant percentage of clot lysis observed when streptokinase was used. On the

A 28-year-old woman had a normal delivery (primipara) on January 15, 2009. On March 20, 2009, she suffered sudden onset of severe headache. Protein-S and protein-C levels were within the normal ranges. Computed tomography on admission showed no subarachnoid hemorrhage, and the patient was discharge with analgesic treatment. Four days later the patient presented again to our emergency department with increased headache, nauseas, vomiting and bruit of the head. In view of the history and clinical evolution, an urgent computerized tomography (CT) brain scan with intravenous contrast was done showing the empty delta sign; as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan was not available at that time, computed tomography in venograms (Fig. 1a,b) was performed revealing occlusion of the superior sagittal sinus and the bilateral transverse sinus. The patient was referred to the Department of Neurosurgery where a cerebral angiography confirmed sinus thrombosis (ST) and revealed a dural arteriovenous fistula ...

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 ...

Theodor von Dusch (17 September 1824 - 13 January 1890) was a German physician who was a native of Karlsruhe. He was the son of Baden statesman Alexander von Dusch (1789-1876). He studied medicine at the University of Heidelberg, where he had as instructors Jacob Henle (1809-1895), Karl von Pfeufer (1806-1869) and Maximilian Joseph von Chelius (1794-1876). He earned his doctorate in 1847, and was habilitated for medicine in 1854. In 1870 he became professor and director of the policlinic at Heidelberg. In the 1850s, with Heinrich G. F. Schröder (1810-1885), he demonstrated that a filter made of cotton-wool was effective in removing microbes such as bacteria from air. Dusch was the author of influential works involving thrombosis of cerebral sinuses ("On thrombosis of the cerebral sinuses"; translated into English in 1861), heart disease ("Lehrbuch der Herzkrankheiten") and diseases of the endocardium and myocardium ("Die Krankheiten des Myocardium" and "Die Krankheiten des Endocardium").

Our study shows important differences between women and men with CVST and between women with and without GSRF, mostly the use of oral contraceptives. The most conspicuous finding is the far better prognosis of women, which is exclusively caused by a substantially better outcome in female patients with GSRF. Previous retrospective studies reported that CVST in pregnant women has a relatively favorable prognosis.15,17 These results are now confirmed in a large, prospective cohort study and extended to women with all GSRF.. The ISCVT is, to date, the largest prospective cohort study on CVST.3 Participating centers included hospitals from all over the world and investigators committed themselves to include data on consecutive patients. Furthermore, CVST was confirmed in all patients using standard radiological techniques and completeness of follow-up data was high. For these reasons, the data presented in this study are likely to be representative of CVST in general. It must be noted, however, that ...

Although they are uncommon in children when compared to adults, both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes occur. In US children, hemorrhagic strokes have an incidence of 2.9/100,000 per year for hemorrhagic events versus 2.8/100,000 per year for ischemic events.1-3 Ischemic strokes can be categorized as arterial ischemic strokes (AIS) and cerebral sinovenous thrombosis (CSVT). In the pediatric population, arterial ischemic stroke usually results from a thromboembolism. Occlusion of venous sinuses or cerebral veins can result in CSVT. The majority of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes occur in the neonatal period, but both occur in older children and adolescents; so this chapter will focus on those from 29 days to adolescence.3 The signs of AIS vary with age and the area of the brain affected by ischemia; they include focal ...
