Case Study
Here, we present a 32-year-old male with proptosis and chemosis of the left eye following a close head injury. Digital subtraction angiography of the left internal carotid artery showed a left carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) associated with a primitive trigeminal artery (PTA) variant. The patient was successfully treated with transvenous Guglielmi detachable coils embolization via the inferior petrosal sinus. The PTA variant was preserved without cerebellar or brainstem infarct.

    Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is the preferred method for confirming dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs), but it has the disadvantage of being invasive. In contrast, time-resolved magnetic resonance angiography (TR-MRA) is a useful, noninvasive imaging technique. The aim of this study...
