PMID: 32001411.


A pressure wire offers a dynamic tool to assist in the measurement of the pressure gradient and assessment of the functional significance of stenosis. The author presents a patient with idiopathic intracranial hypertension(IIH) who was diagnosed with cerebral venous sinus stenosis (CVSS). Venography accompanied by pressure measurement was utilized to guide the stent placement for CVSS.
