From: The incidence of significant venous sinus stenosis and cerebral hyperemia in childhood hydrocephalus: prognostic value with regards to differentiating active from compensated disease

Fig. 2

Site of venous stenosis in four patients with hydrocephalus. a The MRV of case 47, a 6.6 year old female with communicating hydrocephalus secondary to meningitis who has an 85% stenosis of the sagittal sinus (arrow). b The MRV of case 5, a 0.9 year old male with external hydrocephalus who has high grade stenoses of the both transverse and sigmoid sinuses (arrows). Note the accessory occipital sinus in the midline is also stenosed at its origin. c The MRV of case 28, a 0.8 year old female with communicating hydrocephalus who has a 95% stenosis of the distal sigmoid sinus (arrow). d The MRV of case 20, a 0.33 year old male with communicating hydrocephalus secondary to achondroplasia who has a 95% stenosis of the jugular bulb (arrow). Note in this instance the jugular bulb was smaller than the adjacent sigmoid sinus so it was measured instead
