Abstract

The authors present a rare case of dural arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) involving both the transverse-sigmoid sinus and the foramen magnum, which was treated successfully with multi-staged endovascular procedures. The transverse-sigmoid sinus, which was thrombosed proximally and distally, was occluded by transarterial embolization followed by intraoperative embolization of the sinus using platinum coils. The dural AVF involving the foramen magnum was occluded via a transvenous approach.
