Cerebral Venous Thrombosis

Cerebral Thrombosis Treatment By the Elite Vascular Surgeons

Cerebral Venous Thrombosis is generally a rare/ uncommon cause of cerebral infarction which is relative to arterial disease which can be seen in younger patients. Cerebral venous thrombosis is the clotting of blood in the Dural venous sinuses, draining blood from the brain.Vascular Interventions is a well recognized clinic for Cerebral Thrombosis Treatment in Hyderabad

  • Headache
  • Abnormal vision
  • Symptoms of stroke such as weakness in face and body
  • Vomiting And the Signs include
  • Papilledema
  • Cranial nerve palsies
  • Focal neurological deficits
  • Seizures
  • Coma

The diagnosis, generally done by Computed Tomography (CT scan) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to locate the clots in the venous sinuses. Testing is done to determine the further underlying cause.

Treatment will be started as soon as the diagnosis is done, that consists of reversing the underlying known reasons like control of seizures and intracranial hypertension, and antithrombotic therapy.

It may take several weeks or months to get back to normal. Headaches and seizures may persist for some time

Q. Is cerebral venous thrombosis a stroke?

A. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) occurs when a blood clot forms in the brain venous sinuses. As a result, blood cells may break and blood gets leaked into the brain tissues, that forms a hemorrhage.

Q. Is CVT a stroke?

A. Cerebral Venous Thrombosis (CVT) is an unusual form of stroke. CVT affects younger adults and mostly women. CVT is due to blockages of its veins.

Q. Is cerebral thrombosis hereditary?

A. Predisposition to CVT also has a genetic basis and inherited thrombophilias are known to cause 22.4% of the CVT cases. Inherited thrombophilias should be suspected if a patient has recurrent CVT, is less than 45 years’ age, has a family history of venous thrombosis or has no apparent acquired risk factor.

Q. What causes sinus thrombosis?

A. To contain the infection, the body’s immune system creates a clot to prevent bacteria or other pathogens from spreading. The clot increases pressure inside the brain. This pressure damages the brain and may cause death. Rarely, CVT may also be caused by a severe blow to the head.

Q. Can sinus cause death?

A. While serious complications do not occur frequently, it is possible for sinus infection to cause a direct extension of infection into the brain through a sinus wall, creating a life-threatening emergency (for example, meningitis or brain abscess).
