  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Papilledema and increased intracranial pressure are symptoms of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis or idiopathic intrancranial hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They occur more frequently in treatment failure subjects and therefore may be associated with poor visual outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Use of this procedure varies among centers due to experience with the procedure and concern for associated complications that can result in severe loss of vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
