Cerebral vein and dural sinus thrombosis comprises only 0.5% of
all strokes, but is one of the most litigated medical diagnoses due
to the high rate of underdiagnosis and high probability of
neurologic decline without early and aggressive intervention. In
this week's installment, Ali Hamedani puts Jim Siegler in the hot
seat to go over the clinical and radiographic manifestations of
this condition, treatment, and prognosis.
Produced by Ali Hamedani and James E. Siegler. Music by Andy
Cohen, MMFFF, Loyalty Freak Music, Steve Combs, Josh Woodward.
