ABSTRACT
A 33-year-old male was admitted with severe headache lasting 3 days. He did not have a focal neurologic deficit, but had a high intracranial pressure of 512 mmH2O. Cerebral angiography revealed venous sinus thrombosis that mainly involved the superior sagittal and right transverse sinuses. His headache remained severe after intravenous heparin infusion, and so interventional procedures were performed. Mechanical aspiration with the Penumbra system(TM) and other interventional procedures reopened the outflow of the superior sagittal sinus and effectively ameliorated this patient's headache.
