OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that patients with unruptured arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) at presentation have an increased risk of deterioration compared with patients with ruptured AVMs. METHODS A consecutive series of 224 patients treated microsurgically by a single neurosurgeon during a period of 6.4 years was analyzed.
