Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) have an estimated 2-4% annual risk of hemorrhage. Treatment options for AVMs include microsurgical resection, stereotactic radiosurgery, and endovascular embolization. As endovascular technology and techniques continue to advance and mature, endovascular embolization is becoming an increasingly vital component of AVM treatment not only as a presurgical treatment to reduce microsurgical risks, but also as a stand-alone curative method in some cases. This case illustrates the successful and curative transarterial embolization of a right frontal AVM in a 17-year-old boy with ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx).
