Data on arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the brain with AVM-associated aneurysms (AAA) are scarce. This study addresses the incidence, rate of hemorrhage, treatment strategies and stability during follow-up in a neurovascular center. We retrospectively reviewed patients harboring an AVM with at least one AAA treated at our neurovascular center between 2002 and 2013. Of 216 patients, 59 (27.3 %) had at least one AAA (n = 92 aneurysms total). Compared to patients without AAA, hemorrhagic… CONTINUE READING

As the complication rate was low for aneurysm occlusion , we recommend treating these aneurysms whenever possible .
