Eyes Open to Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis
CVST is a rare form of stroke.
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) occurs when a blood clot forms in the veins in the brain also called “venous sinuses”. The clot prevents blood from draining out of the brain causing pressure and damage to blood vessels and the surrounding brain. This can result in a brain hemorrhage.
CVST can occur in adults and children, including newborns and even babies in the womb. A stroke can damage the brain. It is serious and needs immediate medical attention.
