Definitive endovascular treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) requires obliteration of the site of the fistula: either the diseased dural sinus or the pial vein. Access to this site is often limited by occlusion of the sinus proximal and distal to the segment containing the fistula. The authors describe a technique in which the mastoid emissary vein is used to gain access to a Borden-Shucart Type II DAVF in the transverse-sigmoid sinus. Recognition of this route of access, if… CONTINUE READING
