Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this paper, we describe the case of recurrent cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in a patient with increased factor VIII activity, lipoprotein (a) level, and leukocytosis. In addition, we discuss the diagnosis of increased factor VIII activity in patients with cerebral venous thrombosis. With regard to therapy, studies need to be done to establish the duration of therapy with phenprocoumon and the possible use of new oral anticoagulant drugs (i.e., rivaroxaban and dabigatran) in first time and recurrent venous thrombosis.
