This is a case report of a 60-year-old male admitted on suspicion of relapse of idiopathic transverse myelitis (TM), who after further diagnostic workup underwent successful closure of a dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF). Magnetic resonance imaging in DAVF usually shows longitudinal TM, which, unlike DAVF, is also seen with the more common inflammatory or infectious causes usually showing inflammation in the cerebrospinal fluid. The natural history of DAVF is progressive. Since curable options exist, timely diagnosis is most important...

BACKGROUND: Transvenous (TV) embolization is ideal for endovascular treatment of intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVF). However, it is not always feasible because of various factors, and transarterial (TA) embolization could then be tried. We aimed to determine the incidence of 'distally enlarged feeding artery phenomenon' and the major feeding artery in DAVF. In case TV approach is difficult and this phenomenon observed, we could use this vessel for transarterial intravenous (TAIV) embolization as an endovascular treatment modality for DAVF...

Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (SDAVFs) are the most common vascular malformation of the spinal cord, causing segmental lesions of the spinal cord due to venous ischemia. Functional outcomes of treatment in SDAVF patients are favorable, but the rate of improvement varies from 25 to 100%, which complicates prediction of the treatment outcome. AIM: the study aim was to identify a relationship between fistula localization and clinical manifestations and evaluate the effect of disease duration and severity of neurological impairments on immediate and long-term treatment outcomes, based on analysis of the literature and own data...

BACKGROUND: Indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography can be used to delineate the locations of the cortical vessels just prior to dural opening, allowing safe and optimal dural opening. The present clinical series demonstrates the adjunct use of ICG videoangiography to optimize dural opening for the treatment of various cerebrovascular diseases. METHODS: A total of 45 patients underwent surgery for superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery bypass (40), arteriovenous malformation (2), and dural arteriovenous fistula (3) between January 2012 and December 2016...

Visual impairment can complicate cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). Here, we describe the various pathophysiological mechanisms and treatments available. A retrospective chart review of all patients treated for CVT in a large quaternary teaching hospital was done, and cases with visual impairment due to CVT were identified. The various mechanisms causing visual impairment in CVT were (1) raised intracranial pressure (ICP) caused by venous thrombosis without venous infarcts resulting in a benign intracranial hypertension-like presentation of CVT, (2) venous infarcts involving the occipital cortex, (3) raised ICP following the development of a secondary dural arteriovenous (AV) fistula, and (4) arterial occipital infarcts due to posterior cerebral artery compression secondary to herniation in large venous infarcts...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this retrospective multicenter cohort study was to assess the details of the angioarchitecture of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) at the craniocervical junction (CCJ) and to determine the associations between the angiographic characteristics and the clinical presentations and outcomes. METHODS The authors analyzed angiographic and clinical data for patients with CCJ AVFs from 20 participating centers that are members of the Japanese Society for Neuroendovascular Therapy (JSNET). Angiographic findings (feeding artery, location of AV shunt, draining vein) and patient data (age, sex, presentation, treatment modality, outcome) were tabulated and stratified based on the angiographic types of the lesions, as diagnosed by a member of the CCJ AVF study group, which consisted of a panel of 6 neurointerventionalists and 1 spine neurosurgeon...

We present a rare case of dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) with subarachnoid hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage due to its venous aneurysms. A 63-year-old woman was admitted for a sudden loss of consciousness. Computed tomography angiograph, magnetic resonance imaging angiography, and digital subtraction angiography revealed a superior sagittal sinus DAVF. The fistula was fed by the left middle meningeal artery and left internal carotid artery, and was drained by a right vein of Trolard, the superficial Sylvian vein, deep Sylvian vein, and basal vein to the vein of Galen...

Spinal extradural arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) may be more difficult to prospectively identify than dural AVFs because they are less common than dural AVFs. The primary purpose was to further characterize the diagnostic imaging of spinal extradural AVFs with intradural retrograde venous drainage. The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and angiographic results of 23 patients with suspected spinal dural AVFs were analyzed in order to distinguish dural and extradural AVFs. The diagnostic accuracy of MR angiography was retrospectively compared between dural and extradural AVFs...

A 74-year-old male presented with an intracranial hemorrhage caused by multiple dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) in the left transverse sinus and right sigmoid sinus. Four months previously, the patient underwent tongue cancer removal with lymph node dissection and ligation of the right internal jugular vein. Endovascular embolization (transvenous and transarterial embolization) resulted in the complete disappearance of the fistulas. Follow-up angiography revealed new arteriovenous shunts at the superior sagittal sinus and right transverse sinus, and we treated the patient with staged transarterial embolization...

BACKGROUND: N-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) remains the standard embolic agent for spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (SDAVF) treatment. Treatment of SDAVF with ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx, ev3-Covidien, Irvine CA, USA) is currently not well established. Although several cases have reported the use of Onyx to embolize an intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula using a dual-lumen microballoon catheter, Onyx embolization of an SDAVF using a dual-lumen microballoon catheter has not been reported...
