Abstract

The orbital vessels flow changes due to carotid cavernous sinus fistulas (CCSF) was evaluated by color Doppler imaging (CDI). Twelve patients with clinical and angiographic diagnosis of CCSF were examined by CDI of the main orbital vessels. The caliber of the vessel, the direction of blood flow and flow parameters were considered. CDI demonstrated a superior ophthalmic vein (SOV) dilatated, with low resistance arterialized and reversal blood flow in seven high blood flow CCSF. No flow changes were found in the other orbital vessels.
