Dural cavernous sinus fistulas (DCSFs) are benign vascular diseases consisting in an arteriovenous shunt at the cavernous sinus that if misdiagnosed can lead to potentially serious ophthalmologic complications. This volume provides a complete guide to the diagnosis and minimal invasive treatment of DCSFs. After sections on anatomy and classification, etiology and pathogenesis of DCSFs, the symptomatology of the disease is described in detail. The role of modern imaging techniques in the diagnosis of DCSFs is then addressed. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) remains the gold standard for clinical decision-making; here, full consideration is given to both, conventional 2D DSA and rotational 3D angiography. Recent technological advances in this field such as Dual Volume (DV) imaging and angiographic computed tomography (ACT) are considered as well. Due attention is further paid to the use of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound. Finally, the therapeutic management of DCSFs with emphasis on various transvenous occlusion techniques are discussed in depth. This well-illustrated volume will be invaluable to all who may encounter DCSF in their clinical practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a very special book: it addresses a very difficult, peculiar topic yet special; special because the topic is treated with incredible ease, showing the author's profound knowledge of anatomy, clinical situations and findings, diagnostic procedures and ensuing therapeutic options and end-results. . a 'must have' book for all those who deal with this sort of problem: interventional radiologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists, and 'optional' for the general radiologist who wants to keep in touch with the advances in this peculiar field of radiology." (Giampiero Beluffi, Radiologia Medica, Vol. 116, 2011)"This book describes important historical considerations, and succinctly describes the anatomical, pathological and imaging features of the DCSFs. . The book is excellently well illustrated with high quality numerous informative CT, MR, and DSA images. It provides a secure platform from which neurological specialists can build their understanding of the considered conditions and their potential treatment options. . present a very nice summary of this interesting neurovascular topic. Overall the book is an excellent addition to the current literature."­­­ (Waleed Alhajii, European Radiology, Vol. 21, 2011)
