Endovascular Treatment of Pulsatile Tinnitus Caused by Dural Sinus Stenosis

Abstract

A patient presenting with progressive pulsatile tinnitus was found to have an ipsilateral dural sinus stenosis. This problem was successfully treated by an endovascular approach with angioplasty and subsequent sinus stenting. The diagnostic evaluation, therapeutic method, and follow-up concerning this problem and its treatment are discussed.
