BACKGROUND Trans-inferior petrous sinus (IPS) coil embolization is an efficient and safe method to manage cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistulas (CSDAVFs). However, some CSDAVFs may be associated with angiographic occlusive IPS making access difficult. The purpose of this study was to report our experience of transvenous embolization of the CSDAVF via angiographic occlusive IPS. METHODS We reviewed the cases of 20 patients who underwent transvenous embolization via angiographic… CONTINUE READING
