OBJECTIVE To determine by cerebral venography and manometry in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension the cause of the previously demonstrated venous hypertension in the superior sagittal and proximal transverse sinuses. METHODS Cerebral venous sinus pressure was measured before and immediately after C1-2 puncture with removal of 20 to 25 mL of CSF. RESULTS Lowering the intracranial pressure by lateral C1-2 puncture during manometry has shown that the venous hypertension… CONTINUE READING
