thesis / dissertation description
Although cerebral venous thrombosis represents a small proportion of cerebrovascular disease, its incidence and prevalence has increased in recent years. This phenomenon can be explained by the improved access to non-invasive diagnostic methods and the development of more specialized techniques in Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI). Because of these considerations it is convenient to know details related to the demographic and clinical behavior of this entity in our environment. Objective: The aim of this study was to describe demographic and clinical features in patients with cerebral venous thrombosis and its complications in a clinical population from a 4th level hospital in Bogotá, Colombia. Methods: Clinical records belonging to patients with cerebral venous thrombosis were analyzed in order to obtain data regarding to demographic information, clinical condition and complications. Results: 38 clinical records were found, 76.3% females, with 60.5% being of total younger than 40. Thrombophilia was the most frequent risk factor in which antiphospolipid syndrome represented the most common condition. Another important conditions were pregnancy and post-partum period. Conclusion: Cerebral venous thrombosis is a frequent disease in clinical practice. In this study female gender at child bearing age account for the most affected group. Although we did not find statistical correlation, women with antiphospolipid syndrome represented the group with most chance of complications. Further studies with a bigger size sample are necessary.
