(a) A DAVF in the left transverse-sigmoid sinus was shown on the arterial phase of the left common carotid artery angiogram (anteroposterior view). (b) Numerous draining cortical veins of the AVF indicating severe venous reflux and congestion were demonstrated on the venous phase of the angiogram (anteroposterior view). (c) On the arterial phase of the lateral view, a DAVF had many feeding arteries, meningeal branches from the external carotid artery, cortical venous reflux, and the isolated left transverse-sigmoid sinus as drainer [2, 3]. (d) Note the cortical venous congestion in the wide area of the left cerebral hemisphere [2, 3].
