We report a case of a 39-year-old man presenting with a high-grade left parieto-occipital arteriovenous malformation (AVM) complicated by superior sagittal sinus (SSS) stenosis, seven years after the first presentation. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a newly developed perilesional edema. Venous sinus stenosis acutely progressed to occlusion and induced multiple intracerebral hemorrhages. An emergent balloon venoplasty of the SSS successfully recanalized the thrombosed sinus. Further, multistage transarterial nidus embolization was performed followed by surgical resection, resulting in a complete eradication of the large AVM...

Laith A Hussein, Thair A L Hassan
The posterior maxilla is challenged with postextraction alveolar bone resorption and pneumatization drive of the Schneiderian membrane that reduces the subantral distance. To overcome such anatomic obstacle a sinus augmentation procedure was introduced either via lateral or crestal approach depending on residual ridge height. The current study evaluated oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) as a grafting material versus osteon II by measuring bone gain and graft density, 24 weeks postoperatively. Twenty consecutive patients (24 cases) aged from 20 to 65 years were considered eligible after clinical and radiographic evaluation...

BACKGROUND: and Importance: In skull-base tumors involving the cavernous sinus (CS), indications for aggressive resection are sparse and must be carefully examined because of their invasiveness. With careful evaluation, techniques including internal carotid artery (ICA) sacrifice with or without extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass may still be an option in some cases. In addition, previous surgery with the sacrifice of potential donor vessels requires adjusting the revascularization strategy...

In recent years, endoscope-assisted balloon fixation using transantral and endonasal approaches has gained popularity as a minimally invasive treatment for orbital floor fractures. However, the optimal duration for balloon placement and the efficacy of the method have not been fully evaluated. The authors report their assessment of this method using postoperative and chronological measurements of the maxillary sinus volume.Fourteen patients with blowout fracture of the orbital floor who underwent reduction using endoscopic transantral and endonasal approaches followed by 6-week fixation with a balloon were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Direct carotid-cavernous sinus fistulas (CCFs) are high-flow arteriovenous shunts that are typically the result of a severe head injury. The endovascular treatment of these lesions includes the use of detachable balloons, coils, liquid embolic agents, and covered stents. To minimize the chance of treatment failure and subsequent complications, endoluminal reconstruction using a flow-diverting stent may be added to the treatment construct. METHODS: We present 3 cases and review the existing literature...
