Abstract/OtherAbstract:
INTRODUCTION: Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rare in the oral and maxillofacial regions.
DISCUSSION: AVMs may induce severe complications such as uncontrollable bleeding. Superselective intra-arterial embolization is an effective method for this bleeding that is refractory to conservative treatment. Arterial embolization may cause ischemic complications. We report the case of a patient who developed face skin necrosis following bilateral facial artery embolization.
