OBJECT The purpose of this study was to analyze the risk of hemorrhage and the obliteration rate after treatment of patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). METHODS Between 1991 and 1995, 115 patients were treated using gamma knife radiosurgery (GKS). Surgical planning was based on angiograms and three-dimensional images. The angiographic features of the AVMs and the risk factors for hemorrhage were then evaluated. Hemorrhages occurred in eight patients (7%) 7 to 42 months after GKS… CONTINUE READING
