Venous thrombosis after pacemaker implant is a known, although often underrecognized condition that can challenge system revision or upgrading, leading occasionally to thromboembolic complications. Several factors are considered to promote thrombus formation. Among them, alteration of blood flow mechanics due to the presence of catheters in the vessel lumen may itself play a pivotal role. Hereby we present the case of a 65-year old men who underwent a dual-chamber pacemaker implant in another institute for sick sinus syndrome by means of left cephalic venous access...

OBJECTIVE: Closed head injury rarely predisposes patients, particularly children, to the development of dural sinus thrombosis. In addition, most cases of sinus thrombosis are subacute in nature. The following is a case report of a precipitous course of dural sinus thrombosis after closed head injury in a pediatric trauma patient. DESCRIPTION: A 14-year-old African American girl presented to the emergency department as a trauma activation. She was an unrestrained rear-seat passenger involved in a motor vehicle collision during which she was ejected...

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) related to intracranial tumors has most commonly been recognized as an operative complication related to local operative factors such as retraction or direct venous injury. CVST may also be caused by tumor related factors such as local mass effect, but rarely occurs geographically remote from the site of the tumor. We report six cases treated at our institution of intracranial supratentorial tumors associated with CVST. In each case, the CVST was remote from the surgical site...

Behçet's disease is a multisystem disorder with unknown etiology and a unique geographic distribution. The disease is characterized by recurrent skin-mucosa lesions and sight-threatening panuveitis. Vascular involvement, which is more common and more severe among males, has also equally characteristic features such as affecting mostly veins, having a significant tendency for thrombosis, and running a relapsing course. Lower extremity vein thrombosis (LEVT) is the most frequent manifestation, followed by vena cava inferior thrombosis...

We present a 34-year-old man who developed disseminated intra-arterial and venous thrombosis following exposure to extreme high altitude. On evaluation, the patient was found to have thrombosis involving the aorta, bilateral iliac arteries and middle cerebral artery. On detailed evaluation for the cause of recurrent seizures, he was also found to have cerebral venous thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus. The patient underwent amputation of 3 limbs due to gangrene. Procoagulant work up revealed increased plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 activity with 4G/4G polymorphism...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to test the diagnostic value of wavelet-based angiographic reconstruction of CT perfusion data (waveletCTA) to detect cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) in patients who underwent whole-brain CT perfusion imaging (WB-CTP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Datasets were retrospectively selected from an initial cohort of 2863 consecutive patients who had undergone multiparametric CT including WB-CTP. WaveletCTA was reconstructed from WB-CTP: the angiographic signal was generated by voxel-based wavelet transform of time attenuation curves (TACs) from WB-CTP raw data...

PURPOSE: Convexal subarachnoid hemorrhage (cSAH) comprises less than 5% of cases of nontraumatic SAH and frequently presents as a focal and transient neurological deficits that mimics transient ischemic attack (TIA). Isolated cortical vein thrombosis (ICVT) is rare and accounts for only 6.3% of cerebral venous thrombosis. We present a case of minor stroke due to cSAH secondary to ICVT, and alos put emphasis on the chronological change of those serial imagings. CASE REPORT: An 87-year-old man presented with episodes of numbness and dropping of his left arm, which had lasted for three days...

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) has an incidence of 1.32/100,000/years in high-income countries, and higher in middle- and low-income countries. CVT is more frequent in infants and children young adults and females, especially during pregnancy/puerperium. CVT are now being diagnosed with increasing frequency because of the increased awareness and higher use of magnetic resonance imaging (MR) for investigating patients with acute and subacute headaches and new onset seizures. CVT rarely present as a stroke syndrome...

Heart failure (HF) represents a heterogeneous condition characterized by vulnerabilities in the blood, vasculature, and impaired flow dynamics that predispose to both arterial and venous thrombosis. Despite evidence-based advances in the medical and device management of chronic HF, it remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the USA due to repeat hospitalizations and comorbid conditions such as atrial fibrillation (AF) and stroke. The presence of platelet activation and hypercoagulability in HF has been well documented...

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare but serious venous thrombotic disorder in the general population. It has an estimated annual incidence of about 4-5 cases per 1 million persons. It is more common in females than males. We describe below a case of a 49-year-old female patient who presented to the emergency room with 1 day history of right-sided throbbing headache associated with vomiting. Computed tomography (CT) scan of the head without contrast showed venous sinus thrombosis involving the posterior sagittal sinus, extending into the dominant right transverse sinus, which was confirmed by CT head with intravenous contrast...
