Department of Neurosurgery, Asahi General Hospital.

Head trauma is a common condition, but often, serious pathological conditions associated with it are hidden. Skin findings in child abuse cases, such as skull base fracture, battle signs, raccoon eye, open head injury, penetrating wounds, traumatic aneurysm of the superficial temporal artery, traumatic carotid cavernous sinus fistula, and fat embolism have been presented in this paper. It is necessary to observe and record skin findings at the time of consultation and to listen to the detailed medical history that resulted in such an injury. Read More

Trans-superior ophthalmic vein approach for treatment of carotid-cavernous fistula.

Neurosurg Focus 2019 Apr;46(Suppl_2):V4

1Department of Neurosurgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas; and.

The authors present a case of a patient with a Barrow Type B carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) who presented with severe symptoms of eye redness, diplopia, and proptosis. Due to the tortuosity and size of her angular vein and the lack of good flow/access via the inferior petrosal sinus, she was treated with a transvenous approach via a large, dilated superior ophthalmic vein for coil embolization of the CCF. The patient had a full angiographic and symptomatic cure. Read More

Imaging-Guided Superior Ophthalmic Vein Access for Embolization of Dural Carotid Cavernous Fistulas: Report of 20 Cases and Review of the Literature.

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 2019 Apr 7;40(4):699-702. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

From the Department of Radiology (M.K.S.H., D.V., J.R.S.), University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Dural carotid cavernous fistulas are usually treated via a transvenous approach through the inferior petrosal sinus. Surgical exposure and direct access to the superior ophthalmic vein have been previously described in situations in which conventional transvenous access, including the inferior petrosal sinus, is not possible. In this retrospective study of 20 patients, we report our results of imaging-guided percutaneous superior ophthalmic vein access in dural carotid cavernous fistula treatment. Read More

May the Inferior Petrosal Sinus Recanalization During Endovascular Treatment for Carotid-Cavernous Fistulas Increase the Risk of Sixth Nerve Palsy?

World Neurosurg 2018 Aug 3;116:e246-e251. Epub 2018 May 3.

Department of Interventional Neuroradiology, Rothschild Foundation Hospital, Paris, France.

Background: Sixth nerve palsy is a common complication of endovascular treatment for carotid-cavernous fistulas (CCF). Two hypotheses are evoked: the spontaneous venous congestion into the cavernous sinus and the direct compression of the nerve by the embolic agent into the cavernous sinus. Nevertheless, the evidence is still uncertain. Read More

Spontaneous Resolution of Post-Traumatic Direct Carotid-Cavernous Fistula.

Interv Neurol 2018 Feb 27;7(1-2):1-5. Epub 2017 Sep 27.

Department of Neurology, Boston Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Post-traumatic carotid-cavernous fistulas are due to a tear in the wall of the cavernous carotid artery, leading to shunting of blood into the cavernous sinus. These are generally high-flow fistula and rarely resolve spontaneously. Most cases require endovascular embolization. Read More

Embolization of a cavernous carotid fistula through the vein of Labbé: a new alternative transvenous access route.

J Neurointerv Surg 2018 Jun 7;10(6):e11. Epub 2018 Apr 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Huntington Memorial Hospital, Pasadena, California, USA.

Endovascular treatment of carotid cavernous fistulas (CCFs) via a transvenous approach is standard, but in rare cases this approach is challenging due to absence or thrombosis of the commonly used venous routes. A 61-year-old woman presented with a symptomatic CCF with all but one of the venous access routes to the CCF thrombosed, leaving an engorged superficial middle cerebral vein (SMCV) as the only venous outflow from the cavernous sinus. Access to the CCF was made possible after careful navigation of the sigmoid sinus, the vein of Labbé and the SMCV, bypassing the need for surgical access to the SMCV or for a direct transorbital puncture.

Vasospasm in the setting of traumatic bilateral carotid-cavernous fistulas and its effect on treatment.

Surg Neurol Int 2018 16;9. Epub 2018 Jan 16.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of California Irvine, Orange, California, USA.

Background: Direct, Type A, cavernous-carotid fistulas (CCFs) are predominantly caused by head trauma, especially when basilar skull fractures are present. Transarterial endovascular treatment of direct CCFs is the preferred method of treatment. Bilateral CCFs are estimated to be present in 1-2% of the cases. Read More
