Long-term outcome of cognition and functional health after cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.

Author information

Department of Neurology, Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis Study Group.


The authors examined cognition and functional health of 57 patients with sinus thrombosis 1 year or more after enrollment in a randomized trial of anticoagulant treatment or placebo. Eight patients died and two declined participation. Of the remaining 47 patients, 16 (35%) had cognitive impairments, 3 (6%) were dependent, 19 (40%) had symptoms that led to restrictions in lifestyle, and 19 (40%) could not resume their previous level of economic activity. Outcome after sinus thrombosis may be less favorable than reported previously, and was not significantly influenced by treatment.
