INTRODUCTION: Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare cerebrovascular condition accounting for <1% of all stroke cases and mainly affects young adults. Its genetic aetiology is not clearly elucidated. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: To better understand the genetic basis of CVT, we have established an international biobank of CVT cases, Biorepository to Establish the Aetiology of Sinovenous Thrombosis (BEAST) which aims to recruit highly phenotyped cases initially of European descent and later from other populations...

There is ample evidence that arterial and venous links of the vascular bed are interrelated, with the venous part, as the highly organized reflexogenic zone, responsible for the development of complex reactions providing the stability of the cerebral blood flow. There is few publications devoted to the venous pathology of the brain however the prevalence of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is relatively high. The annual prevalence of CVT is 4-7 per 1 million of population. Timely recognition and early diagnosis of CVT are most important for successful treatment of patients...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a marker of cardiovascular diseases and venous thromboembolism, but its role in cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT) is unknown. AIMS: To investigate whether high values of RDW are associated with an increased risk of CVT. METHODS: A case-control study of CVT patients (≥18years-old) referred to our center contrasted with healthy individuals. Odds ratios (ORs) were calculated for RDW values >90th percentile by multivariable logistic regression and adjusted for demographic characteristics, hemorheological parameters, renal function, fibrinogen and CRP...

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...

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...

OBJECTIVE Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is a life-saving treatment for severe hemorrhagic cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). However, the correlations between the clinicoradiological features and surgical outcomes of this disease are not well established. Therefore, the authors endeavored to analyze the potential risk factors for this more severe subtype of CVT and to provide more evidence regarding the benefits of DC in patients with hemorrhagic CVT. METHODS The clinical features, radiological findings, and surgical outcomes of patients with severe hemorrhagic CVT who had undergone DC treatment in the period from January 2005 to March 2015 were retrospectively analyzed, and the risk factors for this disease were evaluated...

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a common disorder with a significant mortality rate. Successful endovascular treatment of acute DVT is most likely to be achieved in patients with recently formed thrombus, (<10-14 days) with acute iliofemoral DVT. Endovascular treatment options include: Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT), pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis (PCDT), percutaneous aspiration thrombectomy (PAT), vena cava filter protection, venous balloon dilatation and venous stent implantation...

Cerebral venous thrombosis is an important cause of stroke in the young. Unlike venous thromboembolism (VTE), women are affected three times more often than men by CVT. The most common symptoms are headache, seizures and focal neurological deficits. The diagnosis can be confirmed with MRI, CT-venography, or catheter angiography. An intracerebral hemorrhage is found on cerebral imaging in approximately 40 % of patients, and can range from small juxtacortical hemorrhages to large space-occupying lesions. Many risk factors for CVT have been reported, most of which overlap with those of VTE...

: Essentials Little is known about recurrences and pregnancy outcome after cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT). We studied a cohort of pregnant women with CVT. Women with CVT appear at increased risk of late obstetrical complications despite prophylaxis. Risks of recurrent thrombosis and bleeding in women on heparin prophylaxis while pregnant are low. SUMMARY: Background The risk of recurrent thrombosis and bleeding episodes in women with previous cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT) on antithrombotic prophylaxis with low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) during pregnancy is not established and little information is available on pregnancy outcome...

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is an uncommon disorder associated with diverse processes. We report a patient who, while receiving desmopressin and contraceptive pills (OCP), developed straight sinus thrombosis. Clinical assessment and laboratory investigations revealed untreated hyperthyroidism and a hypercoagulable state, characterised by high levels of von Willebrand factor, factor VIII coagulant activity and IgM cardiolipin antibody. The clinical picture improved with anticoagulation, treatment of hyperthyroidism and discontinuation of OCP and desmopressin...

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a long-term debilitating vascular brain disease with high morbidity and mortality. It may be associated with rise in D-dimer level. The aim of this study was to examine this potential association and identify the critical D-dimer cut-off level corresponding to increase the risk of CVT. This case-control study was conducted on two groups of patients with and without CVT attending the Rasool Akram Hospital (Iran) during 2014 and 2015. D-dimer levels were measured by the rapid sensitive D-dimer assay...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The incidence of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) varies between studies, but it is estimated to be between 2 and 5 per million per year. A recent study in the Netherlands with comprehensive ascertainment suggested a much higher incidence. It is uncertain whether these differing estimates reflect the quality of ascertainment or true variation. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of CVT in Adelaide, using a novel clinical and radiological methodology...
