Identifier 91_54
Title Neuro-Ophthalmic Vascular Disease
Subject Carotid Cavernous Fistula
Description Carotid cavernous fistulas (CCFs) are connections between the arterial blood flow from the carotid artery system and the cavernous sinus. CCFs may be direct high-flow fistulas or indirect low-flow fistulas. Most direct CCFs are due to trauma. Enlargement of the superior ophthalmic vein may be demonstrated on CT scan or MRI. The signs and symptoms relate to venous engorgement in the orbit, including proptosis, chemosis, injection, and ophthalmoplegia. Visual loss due to glaucoma or retinal venous obstruction may occur in some cases. Pair with Image 91_53.
