Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas: A Review.

Gupta A, Periakaruppan A - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: Dural arteriovenous fistulas are fistulas connecting the branches of dural arteries to dural veins or a venous sinus.Digital subtraction angiography remains the gold standard for diagnosing these fistulas.Endovascular treatment is one of the first line options available for their management.

ABSTRACT
Dural arteriovenous fistulas are fistulas connecting the branches of dural arteries to dural veins or a venous sinus. Digital subtraction angiography remains the gold standard for diagnosing these fistulas. Endovascular treatment is one of the first line options available for their management. This review article reviews the etiopathogenesis, natural history, common classification systems and various available treatment options.

DAVF Type 2b: Selective right ICA (A), ECA (B) and vertebral artery (VA) (lateral view) (C) angiograms show DAVF type 2 b, with feeders from dural branches (arrow) of the ICA, posterior meningeal branch of the middle meningeal artery (arrow) and dural branches (arrow) from the V3 segment of the vertebral artery, draining antegradely through the straight sinus with venous reflux. Post-treatment selective right ICA (D), ECA (E), and VA (lateral view) (F) angiograms show coils (arrows) packing the vein of Galen and the straight sinus, with near-total obliteration of the fistula and cortical venous reflux
