support of the former. In this report, we document immediate resolution of TS and SS stenosis in a patient with IIH after ICP reduction using high-volume lumbar puncture (HVLP). We are the first to use catheter venous manometry simultaneously with intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS) to study intracranial venous occlusive disease. Case Report History and Examination A 32-year-old, severely obese woman (body mass index [BMI] 51.6 kg/m 2 ) previously diagnosed with IIH presented to the University of Virginia Health System after failed medical management with acetazolamide

Therefore, the aims of this retrospective cohort study are 1) to determine the rate of cyst formation after SRS for AVMs, 2) to define predictors of post-SRS cyst formation in AVM patients, and 3) to assess the clinical implications of post-SRS cyst formation. Methods Study Design and SRS Technique We retrospectively evaluated an institutional database comprising all AVM cases treated with SRS at the University of Virginia from 1989 to 2015. Cases with adequate baseline data and ≥ 12 months’ follow-up after SRS were included for analysis. AVMs treated with volume- or dose

perioptic subarachnoid spaces bilaterally ( Fig. 3A ) and an empty sella consistent with intracranial hypertension. Lumbar puncture revealed an opening pressure of 36 cm H 2 O, and the patient experienced temporary improvement after high-volume release of CSF. IIH was diagnosed after further workup demonstrated no other etiology, and acetazolamide treatment was initiated. Initially, the patient's condition improved with medical therapy, but he then had further visual decline. MR angiography demonstrated bilateral transverse sinus stenosis, and cerebral angiography

TO THE EDITOR: We read with great interest the case report by Buell et al. 1 ( Buell TJ, Raper DMS, Pomeraniec IJ, et al: Transient resolution of venous sinus stenosis after high-volume lumbar puncture in a patient with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. J Neurosurg [epub ahead of print August 25, 2017. DOI: 10.3171/2017.3.JNS163181] ). The authors report on an obese woman diagnosed with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) who presented with headache and visual obscurations associated with papilledema, empty sella, and bilateral transverse sinus (TS
