Headaches With Venous Hypertension

Headaches attributed to cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) are often refractory to medication or are associated with other signs of intracranial hypertension. This condition is most commonly a diffuse, progressive, intense type of headache. The symptoms of CVT are similar to those of a tension-type headache. Nevertheless, it is important to be aware of the risks and differential diagnosis of this condition.

Neurological examination revealed abnormalities in 15 patients, with the most common signs being paresthesia and paresis. Twelve patients (63.2%) underwent funduscopy, which was more frequently performed in those patients with a single headache than those who had other symptoms. Ten patients had papilledema. Further testing is necessary to confirm the diagnosis of venous hypertension. However, vascular headaches can be managed by preventing the onset of the condition.

A spinal tap is a diagnostic procedure to evaluate the large veins that supply blood to the brain. This test measures the pressure in the venous sinuses and determines whether the veins are blocked or narrow. A narrowed venous sinus may be the only abnormality found in people with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Other tests may be necessary to rule out other causes of the increased pressure in the head.

Despite these limitations, the patient population studied in this study still includes many patients with vascular issues. Although CVT plays an important role in headaches with venous hypertension, it can be overlooked or even ignored. Nonetheless, it is a significant factor in this condition, which should be considered when treating migraine. Although CVT does not have a specific role in the causes of this condition, it can be an important diagnostic tool.
