We describe a case of transvenous embolization through the dilated supraorbital
vein to treat a dural carotid cavernous fistula. The approach
through the common facial vein or direct access of the superior ophthalmic
vein is a commonly used route to the superior ophthalmic vein
when the approach via the inferior petrosal sinus is unavailable. In rare
cases, the dilated supraorbital vein provides an alternative route and we
discuss the technical details.
