This study enrolls people who have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH), or high pressure in the brain due to unknown reasons. The purpose of this study is to find out if an investigational (experimental) device, which has not been approved by the FDA yet, is safe and can help treat patients who suffer from vision problems and headaches related to IIH. The device being tested is a stent that will reopen the narrowed veins in the brain as other small studies have shown this to be beneficial to patients with IIH. Read More
People ages 18+
Diagnosis of IIH with symptoms of headaches or vision problems
