Abstract

The angiographic features of left spontaneous carotid-cavernous sinus fistula and multiple dural arteriovenous malformations that developed after transvenous embolization are described. A dural arteriovenous malformation involving the left sigmoid sinus was demonstrated, along with a marked decrease in size of the left carotid-cavernous sinus fistula and the disappearance of venous drainage from the left cavernous to the right cavernous sinus after embolization with spring coils via the left superior ophthalmic vein. The dural arteriovenous malformation of the left sigmoid sinus subsequently extended to the transverse sinus after partial embolization of the sigmoid sinus. Finally, a dural arteriovenous malformation involving the left transverse sinus developed, with the disappearance of the arteriovenous malformation affecting the sigmoid sinus and left carotid-cavernous sinus fistula following complete embolization of the sigmoid sinus via the left transverse sinus.
