There is a clear-cut association between ST and DAF, although it may be difficult in some cases to ascertain if the thrombosis was a primary or secondary event . The hypothesis proposed for the pathogenesis of DAVF is based on the physiological arteriovenous shunts between the meningeal arterial networks and the dural venous sinuses.
