An intracranial varix is rare and has been associated mostly with vein of Galen fistulae or arteriovenous (AV) malformations. The authors present eight cases of intracranial, pial or subpial AV fistulae with concomitant giant varices. Six were supratentorial and two were infratentorial. Only one case involved the vein of Galen. In six cases successful surgical and/or endovascular occlusion of the intracranial AV fistula was obtained, and one case was treated conservatively. Staging of surgery… Expand
Intracranial pial arteriovenous fistulas with single-vein drainage. Report of three cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
The authors present the cases of three patients in whom N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate-assisted embolization was performed and the necessity of staged procedures to obliterate the AVF is discussed. Expand
Giant intracranial varix arising from an arteriovenous fistula
TLDR
A case of a giant intracranial varix arising from an arteriovenous (AV) fistula is reported, which was resected surgically with evidence of haemorrhage in the cerebellum. Expand
Surgical management of a pial arteriovenous fistula with giant varix in an infant.
TLDR
A seven-month-old infant presented with a generalized seizure and the radiological evaluation revealed a large arteriovenous fistula in the left sylvian region, which can be successfully managed surgically with good long-term prognosis. Expand
A case of multiple pial arteriovenous fistulas associated with dural arteriovenous fistula.
TLDR
A case of multiple pial AVFs in an adult in whom the lesions developed after radiosurgical treatment of dural AVFs is presented, and direct disconnection of pial arterial supplies was performed and the abnormal shunts were successfully eliminated. Expand
A case of pial arteriovenous fistula with giant venous aneurysm and multiple varices treated with coil embolization.
TLDR
Cerebral angiograms demonstrated a giant venous aneurysm on right frontal lobe beyond the genu of corpus callosum, several varices on both frontal lobes fed by azygos anterior cerebral artery, and markedly dilated draining vein into superior sagittal sinus, suggesting single channel pial AVF with multiple varices.

Report of three cases and review of the literature
TLDR
The authors present the cases of three patients in whom N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate‐assisted embolization was performed and the necessity of staged procedures to obliterate the AVF is discussed. Expand
Endovascular Treatment of a Pial Arteriovenous Fistula With Occipital Remodeling Secondary to Giant Torcular Dilation
TLDR
The authors present the case of a direct pial arteriovenous fistula in an infant and its unusual presentation as a large occipital protuberance with hard consistency and an audible murmur that produced bone remodeling. Expand
Spontaneous thrombosis of a giant cerebral varix in a pediatric patient
TLDR
Spontaneous asymptomatic thrombosis of an isolated cerebral varix without any clinical finding was reported for the first time in the literature. Expand
Intracerebral pial arteriovenous fistula with large venous varix: A rare case report
TLDR
Though endovascular occlusion of feeding arteries offers a simple and safe option, direct surgical removal should be considered in rare cases of intracerebral superficially located large AVF with calcified wall and mass effect. Expand
Pial arteriovenous fistula: a review of literature
TLDR
Pial arteriovenous fistula had high percentage of varix, and mass effect as clinical presentation while the adult type usually manifest by haemorrhage, and total resection of the lesion is unnecessary. Expand

TLDR
Four clinical categories are described, based on the time of onset of symptoms, and the diagnostic studies and surgical techniques discussed, and four-vessel angiography and ligation of the feeding vessels at the point of entry into the vein of Galen are recommended. Expand

TLDR
The location of the arteriovenous fistula, the mass effect of its enlarged draining veins on the cerebellum and CP angle structures, and the simple therapeutic endovascular occlusion with a detachable balloon make this case unique. Expand

While the relationship of vascular malformations to vascular neoplasms is still less than completely clear (Raynor and Kingman '65), it seems relatively certain tha t arteriovenous mal Formations are true developmental malformation and not neoplasm, most notably the cavernous angiomas. Expand
