My fistula is a grade 1, so just treating symptoms like PT until it gets worse. Hopefully that doesn’t happen. Good luck to you!

not sure, it’s all done thru the catheter so I would think he’d check pressures as well. Doc made it sound like that the only way to really know what your dealing with. The MRI showed what they thought was stenosis, but really couldn’t be sure. I didn’t care what they did, I just wanted it to go away! Right now it’s intermittent and not so loud, so I just deal with it.

I went to a neurosurgeon, and he finally recommended a cerebral angiogram. This is how I finally got a diagnosis of DuraL AV fistula.

Forgot to answer your other question, no other symptoms than that. But the whooshing was so loud and constant that it was giving me major anxiety and messing up my sleep.

Hi, sorry for the late reply, this went to junk. The mri showed what they thought was stenosis. Once they did the cerebral angiogram, neurosurgeon Found fistula. I had the embolization about a year ago, unfortunately the noise came back after 4 months. Not nearly as bad though, so haven’t went back to doc yet.

I have been dealing with pulsatile tinnitus in my right ear for about a year. After going to my primary, then an ENT, I finally ended up at a neurosurgeon. I had an MRI first which showed narrowing of a vein close to my ear. The neurosurgeon then performed a cerebral angiography and venography. Finally diagnosed with Dural AV Fistula. This is all pretty recent, so good times. I now have to have some kind of procedure where surgeon will block some vessels in my brain to prevent the turbulent blood flow which is causing me to hear blood swooshing in my ear. My point is there always seems to be a cause for this, so don’t give up!
