Abstract

The etiology of dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) remains controversial as is the issue of whether occlusion or stenosis of the transverse sinus and sigmoid sinus is a cause or a result of DAVFs. We report a case of DAVFs with transverse-sigmoid sinus occlusion and cortical venous reflux. In this case, the reconstruction of normal venous circulation by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the occluded sinus was performed and cortical venous reflux diminished. PTA may be a useful treatment for DAVFs with occluded or stenotic sinus.
