Endovascular treatment of cerebral arteriovenous malformations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The modern management of cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is based on three therapeutic modalities: microneurosurgery, endovascular embolization, and stereotactic radiosurgery. Embolization facilitates subsequent radiosurgery by reducing the volume of the nidus, prepares the resection of surgically accessible AVMs, and immediately addresses the risks related to associated intra/extranidal aneurysms and arteriovenous fistulas. We discuss in this article the current state of AVM endovascular therapy.
