Abstract

BACKGROUND: Cerebrovascular trauma secondary to transorbital intracranial penetrating injury (TIPVI) is rare. Relatively benign initial presentation may mask the underlying life-threatening vascular injury in transorbital intracranial penetrations. The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical features and endovascular treatment of TIPVI.
