PURPOSE To evaluate patient outcome and obliteration rates after radiosurgery (RS) for cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) located deep, in the motor cortex or brainstem and those involving corpus callosum. METHODS AND MATERIALS This analysis is based on 65 patients. AVM classification according to Spetzler-Martin was 13 patients Grade 2, 39 Grade 3, 12 Grade 4, and 1 Grade 5. Median RS-based AVM score was 1.69. Median single dose was 18 Gy. Mean treatment volume was 5.2 cc (range, 0.2… CONTINUE READING
