thrombosis in a patient with active ulcerative colitis and double heterozygosity for Factor V Leiden and prothrombin gene mutations.
6) In 2008, Zhang et al reported their experience with treating 6 patients for cerebral sinus
thrombosis with rheolytic thrombectomy coupled with thrombolytic therapy with locally administered low-dose recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA).
Testing for hereditary thrombophilia in patients following a first episode of intra-abdominal thrombosis or cerebral sinus
thrombosis does not clearly predict the risk of recurrence, and it does not provide evidence-based data on which to determine the duration of treatment.
Abstract: Cerebral venous thrombosis, also known as cortical venous, cerebral sinus
, cerebral venous sinus, or dural sinus thrombosis, results from clot formation in one of the many outflow tracts of the brain.
The blood in the jugular bulb is a mixture of blood draining from the confluence of the cerebral sinus
(CCS) and blood drained directly into the transverse sinus.
