Abstract

Clinical suspicion and excellent neuroimaging are crucial in making a diagnosis of CVT. Intravascular or dural sinus thrombus can be visualized on CT and MRI. Brain edema and intracranial hemorrhage that do not conform to an arterial territory are frequently evident on CT and MRI. Heparin treatment is accepted as the first-line treatment of CVT. Endovascular treatment for management of CVT is usually reserved for selected cases after failure of anticoagulation.
