Sinus Wall Resurfacing for Patients With Temporal Bone Venous Sinus Diverticulum and Ipsilateral Pulsatile Tinnitus

CONCLUSION: PT resulting from either SSD or MFD-VS can be treated successfully with transmastoid resurfacing of the venous wall. Preoperative ipsilesional LFHL and the improvement of hearing threshold after surgical intervention may be preoperative and postoperative surrogate objective signatures of PT. To ensure the resolution of symptoms, secure reconstruction with firm materials and long-term follow-up are mandatory.
