STUDY DESIGN A technical case report of direct surgery for spinal arteriovenous fistulas of the filum terminale. OBJECTIVE We present 2 cases of spinal arteriovenous fistulas of the filum terminale directly fed by the anterior spinal artery that were successfully obliterated with intraoperative image guidance such as digital subtraction angiography,(More)
A case of persistent primitive hypoglossal artery (PPHA) associated with arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is reported. A 46-year-old male suddenly developed severe headache followed by transient unconsciousness and was admitted to our hospital 2 hours later. A computed tomographic scan showed subarachnoid hemorrhage.

The cavernous sinus (CS) is one of the cranial dural venous sinuses. It differs from other dural sinuses due to its many afferent and efferent venous connections with adjacent structures. It is important to know well about its complex venous anatomy to conduct safe and effective endovascular interventions for the CS. Thus, we reviewed previous literatures(More)
We treated three cases of inflammatory granulomas extending from the sphenoid sinus to the cavernous sinus. Case 1 was that of a 36-year-old male with diplopia and right ptosis. Case 2 was that of a 40-year-old male with frontal headache. Case 3 was that of a 70-year-old female with left impaired vision and frontal headache. In the first case, MRI(More)
We report a rare case of a ruptured vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm (VADA) with affected vertebral artery (VA) occlusion. A 66-year-old hypertensive man presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage.
