Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cerebral arterial aneurysm associated with arteriovenous malformation (AVM) has been described with a variable incidence, averaging 10% of AVM cases. The present series includes 39 patients with this association, derived from a total of 400 patients with AVM's evaluated and treated since 1970. The aneurysms are classified into four major groups, each carrying particular therapeutic implications. Optimum treatment of these lesions is based in part on a knowledge of the hemodynamic alterations associated with the AVM's. In most of these cases, the symptomatic lesion was treated first; occasionally, when feasible, both lesions were treated during the same operation. All patients had some form of treatment, either surgical or endovascular, directed to at least one of the two types of lesions. All symptomatic lesions were treated and all ruptured aneurysms were obliterated. There were no deaths in this series.
