Abstract

Purpose To investigate the role of orbital color Doppler ultrasound (OCDUS) in the diagnosis of carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) with anterior drainage and particularly whether a negative OCDUS could avoid an invasive diagnostic cerebral angiography (DSA). Materials and methods Twenty-two consecutive patients with ophthalmic signs suspecting CCF were submitted to ophthalmologic examination, OCDUS and DSA. CCF diagnosis with OCDUS was based on the finding of a reversed, arterialized and low-resistive-index (RI
