The authors report a 39-year-old male suffering pulsatile tinnitus of the left ear with dural arteriovenous malformation of the jugular bulb. There was a venous hypertension due to partial occlusion of the internal jugular vein and sigmoid sinus and venous drainage to the contralateral sinuses. Superselective embolization of these feeding arteries was successfully performed using 25% mixture of histoacryl and lipiodol. After embolization, his complaints of pulsatile tinnitus and buzzing noise behind his left ear disappeared. We present a case of dural arteriovenous malformation involving the jugular bulb, which completely disappeared after transarterial embolization with liquid adhesive.
Key Words: Arteriovenous malformation; Embolization; Tinnitus
