Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The two large endothelium-lined venous channels that begin at the internal occipital protuberance at the back and lower part of the CRANIUM and travels laterally and forward ending in the internal jugular vein (JUGULAR VEINS). One of the transverse sinuses, usually the right one, is the continuation of the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS. The other transverse sinus is the continuation of the straight sinus.
An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.
A vessel that directly interconnects an artery and a vein, and that acts as a shunt to bypass the capillary bed. Not to be confused with surgical anastomosis, nor with arteriovenous fistula.
A fistula between the maxillary sinus and the oral cavity.
Abnormal formation of blood vessels that shunt arterial blood directly into veins without passing through the CAPILLARIES. They usually are crooked, dilated, and with thick vessel walls. A common type is the congenital arteriovenous fistula. The lack of blood flow and oxygen in the capillaries can lead to tissue damage in the affected areas.
BACKGROUND: We report an unusual case of a true dural aneurysm arising from the posterior meningeal artery that fed a symptomatic dural arteriovenous fistula located at the right transverse-sigmoid si...
BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: We describe a novel technique that uses a goose neck snare for microcatheterization at transvenous embolization (TVE) for dural arteriovenous fistulae (dAVF). We have named...
Intracranial cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistula (CS-dAVF) rarely causes intracranial hemorrhage. We report a case of CS-dAVF presenting with intracranial hemorrhage. A 62-year-old man present...
We report a case of vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation (VGAM) with a newly developed dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) subsequent to successful embolization. A male neonate diagnosed as VGAM with p...
A 61-year-old man with factor V Leiden thrombophilia presented with hemorrhage and transverse sinus thrombosis (figure, A). Four years later, he developed worsening aphasia, new hemorrhage, and hemisp...

The primary objective is to determine if the use of losartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker, can attenuate left ventricular hypertrophy, independent of its antihypertensive effects, i...
The primary objective of this study is to compare two treatment strategies for establishing dialysis access in patients with unsuitable forearm veins for the standard forearm primary radio...
