Functional Recovery After Cerebral Venous Thrombosis
Cerebral venous thrombosis is a relatively uncommon disease as compared to the cerebral arterial infarct, but it is a disabling disease condition with serious sequels. It negatively affects the quality of life of many survivors. Its disease course and recovery trajectory have not been well investigated with limited dedicated studies, especially studies focusing on functional recovery. This narrative chapter will review the published literatures and summarize the general recovery pattern, major determinants of recovery with a special emphasis on outcomes prediction, mechanisms of the recovery, and special consideration in certain clinical scenarios. In the end, future research direction is highlighted and proposed.
