Abstract
Increased pressure in the dural venous sinuses has been proposed as the cause of idiopathic intracranial hypertension and mostly from the stenoses or occlusions of the lateral sinuses. This hypothesis has received further support from manometry of the dural venous sinuses, showing a substantial proximalto-distal pressure gradient, and from reports of improvement of idiopathic intracranial hypertension following stenting of the dural sinuses. We described a 44-year-old woman with symptom of idiopathic intracranial hypertension, who was treated with transverse sinus stenting in our hospital.
Key Words: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension; Venous sinus; Stenting
