Summary of "Clinical Characteristics and Microsurgery Treatment of Anterior Cranial Fossa Dural Arteriovenous Fistula."

Anterior cranial fossa dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) represent 6% of all intracranial DAVFs and have a high risk of intracranial hemorrhage. To analyze the clinical characteristics and microsurgery treatment of anterior cranial fossa DAVFs, a retrospective review of 21 patients with anterior cranial fossa DAVFs undergoing microsurgery was performed, including 8 bleeding patients and 13 non-bleeding patients. The Glasgow coma scale (GCS) scores were used to evaluate the conscious states of 8 bleeding patients before and after operation. All patients had no obvious complications and the clinical symptoms were improved after operation. No abnormal fistulas and drainage veins were detected by digital subtraction angiography postoperatively. The GCS scores of 8 bleeding patients showed that the conscious states became better than pre-operation. Of the 21 patients, 9 patients were followed up without recurrence. Taken together, microsurgery is an effective method for the treatment of anterior cranial fossa DAVFs and it is very important for the improvement of bleeding patients' conscious states.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The compartment containing the anterior extremities and half the inferior surface of the temporal lobes (TEMPORAL LOBE) of the cerebral hemispheres. Lying posterior and inferior to the anterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, ANTERIOR), it is formed by part of the TEMPORAL BONE and SPHENOID BONE. It is separated from the posterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR) by crests formed by the superior borders of the petrous parts of the temporal bones.

The part of the membranous labyrinth that traverses the bony vestibular aqueduct and emerges through the bone of posterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR) where it expands into a blind pouch called the endolymphatic sac.

The compartment containing the inferior part and anterior extremities of the frontal lobes (FRONTAL LOBE) of the cerebral hemispheres. It is formed mainly by orbital parts of the FRONTAL BONE and the lesser wings of the SPHENOID BONE.

Acute or chronic inflammation of the arachnoid membrane of the meninges most often involving the spinal cord or base of the brain. This term generally refers to a persistent inflammatory process characterized by thickening of the ARACHNOID membrane and dural adhesions. Associated conditions include prior surgery, infections, trauma, SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, and chemical irritation. Clinical features vary with the site of inflammation, but include cranial neuropathies, radiculopathies, and myelopathies. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1997, Ch48, p25)

A secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
