The treatment selection for cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) still is in controversy. In order to find out the best way to treat AVM, we summarized the treatment result of AVM patients in our hospital. Sixty-three AVM patients who had been treated at Nagoya University Hospital since 1988 to 1997 were studied. The patient characteristics were nearly the same as other reported series. The treatment modalities include surgery, embolization and radiosurgery. Rate of nidus disappearance was…

Brain AVM Embolization with Onyx®: Analysis of Treatment in 34 Patients
The main problem of Onyx is that the apparently easier approach will probably lead to a wider diffusion of these procedures, and this is not affected by the quality of the embolizing agents used and must be kept in mind at all times.
Prime esperienze di embolizzazione di MAV cerebrali con Onyx®
La colla acrilica va considerata un mezzo embolizzante valido, definitivo, ma di uso difficile e con significativi rischi per il paziente, quando si considerino cumulativamente le varie casistiche presenti in letteratura.
Prime esperienze di embolizzazione di MAV cerebrali con Onyx® Analisi del trattamento di sette pazienti
L’approccio endovascolare alle malformazioni artero-venose (MAV) con vari agenti embolizzanti è una opzione terapeutica ormai collaudata da alcuni decenni. Esso consente la completa chiusura della


Embolization of cerebral arteriovenous malformations: Part II--Aspects of complications and late outcome.
The indication for treatment increases with the occurrence of AVMs with associated aneurysms, and for patients with large AVMs, a history of bleeding justifies a more aggressive approach to treatment.
Embolization of cerebral arteriovenous malformations: Part I--Technique, morphology, and complications.
In a series of AVMs, most of which were regarded as unsuitable for surgical excision, two-thirds were reduced to a size suitable for gamma knife treatment or totally occluded by embolization alone.
Combined endovascular embolization and surgery in the management of cerebral arteriovenous malformations: experience with 101 cases.
The authors describe their experience with 101 cerebral arteriovenous malformations treated by endovascular embolization followed by surgical removal of AVM's in patients with intracranial hemorrhage and seizures.
The natural history of unruptured intracranial arteriovenous malformations.
The authors conducted a long-term follow-up study of 168 patients to define the natural history of clinically unruptured intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) and found the size of the AVM and the presence of treated or untreated hypertension were of no value in predicting rupture.
Surgical excision of cerebral arteriovenous malformations: late results.
A follow-up study of 153 consecutive patients who underwent complete excision of an angiographically visualized intracerebral arteriovenous malformation was conducted, finding that over half of the patients who had seizures before surgery were either cured or greatly improved with respect to the seizures.
Treatment of arteriovenous malformations of the brain with combined embolization and stereotactic radiosurgery: results after 1 and 2 years.
The data support the efficacy of combined embolotherapy and radiosurgery for definitive therapy of selected large AVMs of the brain in patients with large arteriovenous malformations.
A proposed grading system for arteriovenous malformations.
A simple, broadly applicable grading system that is designed to predict the risk of morbidity and mortality attending the operative treatment of specific AVM's is proposed and has demonstrated its correlation with the incidence of postoperative neurological complications.
Hemorrhage in intracerebral arteriovenous malformations: angiographic determinants.
Multivariate linear discriminant analysis demonstrated that central venous drainage, angiomatous change (negatively predictive), intranidal aneurysm, and periventricular or intraventricular location of the AVM were the most discriminating or predictive characteristics of hemorrhage.
