Diagnosis and Management of Cerebral Venous Diseases in Neuro-Ophthalmology: Ongoing Controversies.

Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2019 Jan-Feb;8(1):73-85. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Ophthalmology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, United States.

Diseases of the cerebral venous system frequently lead to neuro-ophthalmic complications. Cortical venous sinus thrombosis and dural arteriovenous fistulas may be complicated by elevation of intracranial pressure, with secondary papilledema or abducens palsies. There is increasing recognition that stenosis at the transverse sinus-sigmoid sinus junction plays a role in the pathophysiology of idiopathic intracranial hypertension and offers a new avenue of treatment in patients who fail medical therapy.

Sinonasal-Related Orbital Infections in Children: A Clinical and Therapeutic Overview.

J Clin Med 2019 Jan 16;8(1). Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Otolaryngological Unit, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, 20122 Milan, Italy.

Sinonasal-related orbital infections (SROIs) are typically pediatric diseases that occur in 3⁻4% of children with acute rhinosinusitis. They are characterised by various clinical manifestations, such as peri-orbital and orbital cellulitis or orbital and sub-periosteal abscesses that may develop anteriorly or posteriorly to the orbital septum. Posterior septal complications are particularly dangerous, as they may lead to visual loss and life-threatening events, such as an intracranial abscess and cavernous sinus thrombosis. Read More

Pediatric Congenital Cerebrovascular Anomalies.

J Neuroimaging 2019 Mar 31;29(2):165-181. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Interventional Radiology, Sanford Aberdeen Clinic, Aberdeen, SD.

Congenital cerebrovascular anomalies in the pediatric age group are myriad with diverse etiologies. The purpose of this paper is to provide an imaging overview of congenital vascular malformations and vascular tumors, as these conditions are varied and the characteristic vascular abnormality may even suggest the underlying systemic condition in helping to guide further management. For example, the identification of an arterial anomaly such as agenesis/hypoplasia/duplication may warrant further evaluation for an associated syndrome. Read More

He had been treated for suspected giant cell arteritis (GCA) with high-dose corticosteroids which were being tapered to stop after an inconclusive right temporal artery biopsy and an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) value of 8. His current acute presentation, however, raised further concern for partially treated GCA and precipitated treatment with pulsed methylprednisolone. Read More

species and orbital apex syndrome: Unsuspected co-infection.

Saudi J Ophthalmol 2018 Jan-Mar;32(1):86-89. Epub 2018 Feb 8.

Diagnostic Services of Manitoba, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

species are thermally dimorphic fungi existing as yeast in tissue. We report an initially immunocompetent patient with orbital apex syndrome (OAS) whose presentation suggested giant cell arteritis. Subsequently, metastatic carcinoma was entertained as a cause of OAS until bronchoscopy yielded species. 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.

Rapid M1 Hemoclips Arteriotomy Repair After Emergency Coil Embolectomy.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2018 Jul;15(1):25-31

Arkansas Neuroscience Institute, CHI St. Vincent Infirmary, Little Rock, Arkansas.

Background: The vascular closure staple clips have been studied in animal models and shown to have comparable results with sutured repair when it comes to the healing process, degree of vessel narrowing, and risk of thrombosis. However, they are clearly superior when the speed of application is taken into account, and they were clinically used in many vascular repair processes. Nevertheless, their usefulness in intracranial vascular surgery has not been described. Read More

Septic Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis Following a Minor Head Injury: A Rare Cause of Medico-Legal Death.

J Forensic Sci 2018 Nov 21;63(6):1888-1891. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Department of Forensic Medicine, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand, 10700.

Septic cavernous sinus thrombosis (SCST) is an uncommon consequence of head and face infection, but a rare complication after craniofacial fracture. In this case, SCST developed in a 13-year-old girl following a minor fall during volleyball, with impact and resulting abrasive contusion of the left forehead. She developed watery rhinorrhea, progressive headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, and left proptosis with blurred vision, and was admitted to hospital 3 days after injury. Read More

Transfemoral thrombectomy in the cavernous sinus and superior ophthalmic vein.

J Neurointerv Surg 2018 May 17;10(5):e8. Epub 2018 Feb 17.

Department of Neurointerventional Radiology, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) is a rare condition that can cause death, neurologic disability, and visual loss. A pre-teen with septic CST leading to ocular hypertension and acute visual loss was treated at our institution with thrombectomy and thrombolysis of the cavernous sinuses and superior ophthalmic veins. Successful recanalization of the bilateral cavernous sinuses and superior ophthalmic veins was achieved in two separate procedures without complication. Read More

Polymorphism in dural arteriovenous fistula: matrix metalloproteinase-2-1306 C/T as a potential risk factor for sinus thrombosis.

J Thromb Haemost 2018 04 25;16(4):802-808. Epub 2018 Mar 25.

Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.

Essentials Sinus thrombosis may play a crucial role in development of dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF). Little is known about the association between gene polymorphism and the development of DAVF. MMP-2-1306 C/T showed a higher prevalence rate in DAVF cases with sinus thrombosis. Read More

Occipital lobe infarction: a rare presentation of bilateral giant cavernous carotid aneurysms: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2018 Feb 2;18(1):25. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, 270 Rama VI Road, Bangkok, 10400, Thailand.

Background: Cavernous carotid aneurysm (CCA) represents 2-9% of all intracranial aneurysms and 15% of internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms; additionally, giant aneurysms are those aneurysms that are > 25 mm in size. Bilateral CCAs account for 11-29% of patients and are commonly associated with structural weaknesses in the ICA wall, secondary to systemic hypertension. CCAs are considered benign lesions, given the low risk for developing major neurologic morbidities (i. Read More
