BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Therapeutic strategy for the cerebral arteriovenous malformations (cAVM) is mainly based on the assessment of hemorrhage risk. This risk is estimated between 2 and 4% according to various series. However, this is a collective risk projected upon a given population. To improve therapeutic strategy for cAVM, we propose a grading of the individual hemorrhage risk based on 5 angiographic parameters: 4 are increasing risk factors and one is a favorable index.
