BACKGROUND Intervention for brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs) should aim at treatment that is safe and effective. OBJECTIVE To analyze a prospective database to derive the probability of neurological deficit and adjust this risk for effectively treated bAVMs (complication-effectiveness analysis [CEA]). METHODS First, we calculated the percentage of surgical complications leading to a modified Rankin Scale >1 at 12 months after surgery for each Spetzler-Ponce class (SPC). Second, we… CONTINUE READING
