Therapeutic embolization by means of transvenous copper wire insertion was performed in five patients with dural arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) of the cavernous sinus. In each case, angiograms had shown that the AVM's were supplied from both internal and external carotid arteries, which was thought to render complete transarterial embolization difficult. A No. 2.5 French Teflon catheter was introduced into the affected cavernous sinus through the superior ophthalmic or internal jugular… CONTINUE READING
