171 Possible Causes for Intracranial Hypertension, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Acute intracranial hypertension (IHT), when severe and sustained, is a life-threatening complication that demands emergency treatment.[] hypertension.[] We hypothesize that early DC, based on CT evidence of intracranial hypertension, improves intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP).[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    […] hemorrhage causing intractable intracranial hypertension, decompressive hemicraniectomy may be considered Disposition, consults and follow up early neurology and haematology[] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[] The patient may present with one or several of these. 2-4 The most common syndrome is intracranial hypertension resulting in headache .[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Craniopharyngiomas will cause mass effect symptoms, including visual loss or symptoms of intracranial hypertension. [18] Erfurth EM.[]

  • Brain Abscess

    The patient developed a brain abscess and a subdural collection with severe intracranial hypertension of fatal evolution.[] Other findings are paresthesias 12,17, cerebelar signs 11,31, facial palsy 31, and intracranial hypertension 11.[] Symptoms include fever, malaise, irritability, severe headache, convulsions, vomiting, and other signs of intracranial hypertension.[]

  • Intracranial Sinus Thrombosis

    FLAIR MRI ( left lower image ) and MRV ( right lower image ) demonstrated a subacute right transverse sinus thrombosis (blue arrow) as the cause of the intracranial hypertension[] Even in patients with no evidence of systemic thrombosis, but who have sagittal sinus thrombosis, the possibility of dislodging pulmonary emboli should be strongly considered[] hypertension, SAH, meningitis, or intracranial lesions.[]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    CVT may cause brain infarction and increased intracranial pressure. Sometimes, idiopathic intracranial hypertension presents as the only clinical manifestation.[] Cerebral vein thrombosis, also called superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, is a well recognized clinical and radiologic entity associated with a variety of medical disorders[] […] children, cerebral sinovenous thrombosis, dural sinus thrombosis, sagittal sinus thrombosis, and sinus thrombosis.[]

  • Cerebral Venous Sinus Disorder

    Intracranial venous sinus stenting for benign intracranial hypertension: clinical indications, technique, and preliminary results.[] […] and 23 (46%) patients had superficial system (superior sagittal sinus) thrombosis.[] […] hemorrhage causing intractable intracranial hypertension, decompressive hemicraniectomy may be considered Disposition, consults and follow up early neurology and haematology[]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

    Cerebral venous (or sinus) thrombosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of intracranial hypertension.[] Subsequent computed tomography and magnetic resonance venography confirmed a superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[] Conservative treatment of intracranial hypertension, including just repeated lumbar puncture and oral acetazolamide, was performed.[]

  • Sinusitis

    Intracranial complications included subdural empyema, frontal lobe abscesses, intrahemispheric abscesses, cavernous and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, and osteomyelitis[] Intracranial complications include epidural and subdural empyema, intraparenchymal brain abscess, meningitis, and cavernous or sagittal sinus thrombosis.[]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Complications include intracranial hypertension, brain herniation, and death.[] Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[] Intracranial hypertension is considered the main reason for surgical indication in subjects with ICH, especially in cases in which there is a progressive neurological deterioration[]
