Abstract

Pulsatile exophthalmos in association with carotid-cavernous sinus fistulas has been well defined anatomically, by angiography. This paper presents the physiological assessment of this entity, as measured with ocular pneumoplethysmography (OPG-Gee). The abnormal arteriovenous communication lowers resistance to arterial flow. This is characterized by a lowered ophthalmic systolic pressure and an increased ocular blood flow. The OPG readily documents the physiological result of therapeutic intervention.
