Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare entity with a potentially fatal outcome. Especially patients who do not respond to standard medical therapy alone may benefit from endovascular treatment options. We evaluate the angiographic and clinical results of mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in patients with severe CVT.

Mechanical thrombectomy with intra-operative local thrombolysis versus mechanical thrombectomy with continuous thrombolysis for treatment of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis: A Systematic Review of 82 Cases.
The first-line treatment of Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is systemic anticoagulation. However, patients with severe or clinical worsening condition might benefit from mechanical thrombectom...
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a relatively uncommon cause of stroke in pediatric and young adult. The clinical course of CVST is also highly variable. In particular, coma has been noted a...
Surgical treatment options are limited for medically and endovascular refractory cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVT). We describe the technical feasibility of open, direct sinus thrombectomy in a p...
BACKGROUND Extra-intestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) include thromboembolic events that can present as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and cerebral venous sinus thr...
Percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) represents a treatment option in addition to conventional therapy for patients with iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis (DVT). We sought to determine the safety...
This is a single-center, retrospective, open-label study. This study is planned to investigate the accuracy of mRS and NIHSS, comparing with the accuracy of CSF pressure and papilledema gr...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of Percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) followed by standard anticoagulant therapy, with anticoagulation therapy alone, for the ...
This study was aimed to reveal the clinical features,natural history of the diseases and current therapeutic situations of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) in China mainland. Blood samples...
This study aims to identify factors influencing the time span and success of reperfusion after a mechanical thrombectomy in the acute phase of cerebral infarction, and in particular the ef...
This study aims to evaluate the hypothesis that thrombectomy devices plus medical management leads to superior clinical outcomes in acute ischemic stroke patients at 90 days as compared to...
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the CRANIAL SINUSES, large endothelium-lined venous channels situated within the SKULL. Intracranial sinuses, also called cranial venous sinuses, include the superior sagittal, cavernous, lateral, petrous sinuses, and many others. Cranial sinus thrombosis can lead to severe HEADACHE; SEIZURE; and other neurological defects.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.
An intracranial or rarely intraspinal suppurative process invading the space between the inner surface of the DURA MATER and the outer surface of the ARACHNOID. Bacteria and other pathogenic organisms may gain entrance to the subdural space from the FRONTAL SINUS; ETHMOID SINUS; middle ear (EAR, MIDDLE); MASTOID; or as the result of CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA or NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. This condition may be associated with intracranial sinus thrombosis (SINUS THROMBOSIS, INTRACRANIAL). Circumscribed collections of purulent material in the subdural space are referred to as subdural abscesses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p709)
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment. In developed nations, lateral sinus thrombosis can result from CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; THROMBOPHILIA; and other conditions. Clinical features include HEADACHE; VERTIGO; and increased intracranial pressure.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
