abstract

  • Dural venous sinus thrombosis (DVST) is a pathological phenomenon resulting from vascular occlusion of the cerebral venous sinuses. The mainstay of therapy for DVST is anticoagulation but more aggressive interventional therapies must be considered when medical therapy fails. A case is presented of a patient who was diagnosed with DVST, medically treated immediately but continued to deteriorate. Invasive endovascular therapies ultimately obliterated the thrombi in her sinuses. A brief review of the literature is reported.
