Endovascular management of patients with cerebral arteriovenous malformations.

Author information

Department of Neurosurgery, Christian Doppler Medical Center, Salzburg, Austria.


The endovascular management of brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is a part of the therapeutic AVM strategy. In selected cases, endovascular therapy may lead to a total and permanent cure, but in most cases it will be an adjunctive therapy to microsurgery or radiosurgery. Embolization of brain AVMs is still a technical challenge that requires experience and skill on the part of the physician and requires a further improvement of tools, but it has made brain AVMs curable.
