Imaging Characteristics of Sigmoid Sinus Wall Anomalies, Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, and Spontaneous CSF Leaks.
To assess the frequency of radiographic features of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) in patients with sigmoid sinus wall anomalies (SSWA) and compare to those in idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and spontaneous CSF (sCSF) leaks.Retrospective review.Tertiary care center.110 patients – 62 SSWAs, 19 IIH, 29 sCSF leaks.Demographics, comorbidities and radiographic features by diagnosis.Imaging findings indicative of elevated ICP were similar across all three groups, as were body mass index, hyperlipidemia and diabetes. On univariate analysis, sCSF leak patients were significantly older than SSWA (60 vs. 41 years, p
