Venoplasty and stenting of a jugular foramen meningioma.

Abstract:
The authors describe a novel approach to relieving major venous sinus stenosis at the level of the jugular bulb caused by a petrous meningioma. A balloon-expandable renovascular stent was deployed via a jugular approach to restore venous outflow and thus reduce visual and vestibulocochlear symptoms. Endovascular balloon venoplasty and stenting may assess and restore cranial outflow in veins compressed by soft tumours in anatomical locations challenging to surgical resection, even in the absence of intracranial hypertension.
