Giant cervical epidural veins after craniectomy for head trauma.

PMID:  9613509     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Markedly dilated cervical epidural veins and right upper extremity weakness developed in a 43-year-old man 4 months after contralateral craniectomy for head trauma. After cranioplasty, his symptoms improved markedly and the size of the veins returned to normal. These findings suggest that enlarged cervical epidural veins may occur without an underlying vascular lesion and that upper extremity weakness may occasionally be attributable to spinal cord venous stasis.
