What is Transverse Sinus Stent?

A stent is a small device, often made of mesh, that is used to strengthen and support weakened blood vessels. The transverse sinuses are portions of the brain that allow blood to drain; placing a stent in these sinuses helps facilitate the proper drainage of blood from the brain.
