Dural Venous Sinus Stent
What are stents done for in IIH?
Venous Sinus Stent

The dural venous sinuses are veins that are found between layers in the thick membrane (dura matter) that covers the brain and spinal cord. This keeps the CSF contained safely. Sometimes the venous sinuses can decrease the blood flow out of the brain. If this is the case a stent is put into open the vein for the blood to flow more freely. Your Doctors will have conducted tests first to see if this procedure is necessary.
