IIH and Brain Glymphedema

May 17, 2023

The recent discoveries of the glymphatic system and of dural lymphatic vessels represent major breakthroughs in basic neurosciences, allowing new insights into complex neurological conditions. In light of these findings, the interplay between the circulation of CSF and the cerebrovascular system (including arteries, veins and lymphatics) seems to be more intimately related than previously suspected. In the broader context of these basic science findings, idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) has been recently summarized in the following pathological triad: “restriction of the venous CSF outflow pathway – overflow of the lymphatic CSF outflow pathway – congestion of the glymphatic system”.

Stephanie Lenck, MD is the first physician researcher to have understood the role of the venolymphatic system in IIH. Learn about her research and findings in this fascinating lecture.

Dr. Stéphanie Lenck is an Interventional Neuroradiologist at Groupe hospitalier Pitié Salpêtrière and a researcher at the Paris Brain Institute (INSERM) in Paris. Her research at the Paris Brain Institute focuses on idiopathic intracranial hypertension, cerebral venous and lymphatic physiology, and vascular malformations.

Dr. Y. Pierre Gobin

Interventional Neuroradiologist, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York

Dr. Y. Pierre Gobin is an interventional neuroradiologist at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York. He is a pioneer in new and effective treatments for cerebral aneurysms and has developed and established minimally invasive surgical approaches to treat acute strokes and eye tumors.

Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH) is an underdiagnosed and undertreated disorder of elevated pressure within the brain without an identifiable cause. The IIH Practioner Series is designed for neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-interventionalists, endovascular surgeons, interventionist radiologists, neuroradiologists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and ENT specialists.
