It is concluded that stereotactic radiosurgery, as a non-invasive alternative, is associated with a good outcome for the AVM as well as AVM-related seizures in children.
Effects of stereotactic radiosurgery on an animal model of hippocampal epilepsy.
In this rat hippocampal epilepsy model, stereotactic radiosurgery was followed by a significant dose-dependent reduction in the frequency of observed and EEG-defined seizures, which were not accompanied by increased radiation-induced structural or metabolic brain injury as assessed by proton and sodium MRI or histological examination.

Radiosurgery can provide long-term control of acoustic neuromas while preserving neurologic function and no new neurologic deficits appeared more than 28 months after radiosurgery.
Stereotactic radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformations of the brain.
Stereotactic radiosurgery successfully obliterates carefully selected arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) of the brain, especially those previously considered inoperable, in an initial 3-year experience using the 201-source cobalt-60 gamma knife at the University of Pittsburgh.
Tolerance of cranial nerves of the cavernous sinus to radiosurgery.
A proposed radiosurgery-based grading system for arteriovenous malformations.
The proposed AVM grading system strongly correlated with patient outcomes after single-session radiosurgery for both patient groups and allows a more accurate prediction of outcomes from radiosur surgery to guide choices between surgical and radiosurgical management for individual patients with AVMs.
Results of acoustic neuroma radiosurgery: an analysis of 5 years' experience using current methods.
Radiosurgery for acoustic neuroma performed using current procedures is associated with a continued high rate of tumor control and lower rates of posttreatment morbidity than those published in earlier reports.

Radiosurgery for idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia was safe and effective, and it provided benefit to a patient population with a high frequency of prior surgical intervention.
