Conclusions Our data suggest that stenting may be a promising therapeutic option for IIH with cerebral venous sinus stenosis of non thrombotic, non external compression . The majority of patients may get longer-term positive outcomes with stenting. PMID: 30727893 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Fibromuscular dysplasia is a noninflammatory, nonatherosclerotic disease that results in fibrous tissue buildup of the medium-sized arteries. Areas of stenosis and dilation in the arteries can result in dissection or aneurysm. The stenotic areas of the vessel alternating with dilation result in what is often described as a “string of beads” appearance on imaging. Symptoms depend on location and severity of the disease. Common symptoms include migraine-type headache, flank pain, and pulsatile tinnitus.

This study aimed to analyze the similarities and differences between IJV stenosis and CVS stenosis. Patients with either IJV stenosis or CVS stenosis confirmed by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography between October 2017 and July 2018 were enrolled in this retrospective study. The similarities and differences between IJV stenosis and CVS stenosis on the aspects of clinical and imaging features were compared. A total of 82 eligible patients entered into the final analysis. The similarities of the two subsets of cerebral venous outflow insufficiency mainly included headache, head noises or tinnitus, visual disorde...

Objective: Characterize the morbidity associated with vestibular schwannoma (VS) as documented by treating providers. Study Design: Retrospective analysis of the MarketScan database. Setting: MarketScan database. Subjects and Methods: A study of morbidity in VS patients who underwent treatment between 2002 and 2012 was conducted. A detailed account of morbidity at multiple time points before and after treatment was described. Results: Of 3,355 patients treated for VS, 2,029 (60.5%) underwent surgery and 1,326 (39.5%) radiation. The average (SD) age of diagnosis was 52.5 (12.1) years. Patients were followed fo...

In this study, we aimed to elucidate the clinical features, neuroimaging characteristics and pathogenesis of IJVS, and explore their possible correlations, in attempt to provide useful clues for clinical diagnosis and treatment. Forty-three eligible patients with unilateral or bilateral IJVS confirmed by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography of the brain and neck were enrolled in this study. Magnetic resonance imaging along with magnetic resonance angiography or computed tomography angiography was applied to identify the radiological pattern of parenchymal or arterial lesions. Cerebral perfusion and metabolism we...

Abstract Arteriovenous fistulae of the internal maxillary artery are exceedingly rare, with less than 30 cases reported in the literature. Most of these lesions are congenital, iatrogenic, or posttraumatic. The most common presentation of internal maxillary artery fistulae is pulsatile tinnitus and headache. Because these lesions are single-hole fistulae, they can be easily cured with endovascular techniques. The authors present a case of a patient who presented to their institution with a several-year history of pulsatile tinnitus who was found to have an internal maxillary artery arteriovenous fistula, which was...

Conclusions: VSS is likely associated with either hyperactive visual cortices or, alternatively, impaired processing of simultaneous afferent information projecting to cortex. VSS likely results from widespread disturbance of sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception. There may be a number of syndromes associated with impaired sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception, including migraine, persistent perceptual postural dizziness, and tinnitus, which overlap with VSS. Elucidation of abnormality in one defined syndrome may provide a path forward for investigating all.
