About this book

Introduction

This book reviews the natural course of arteriovenous malformation (AVM) disease and the active treatment modalities. These are compared with surgical and neuropsychological results achieved at the Military University Hospital, Prague, Czech Republic. Based on these comparisons, treatment recommendation for AVM is articulated. Furthermore, the long-term efficacy of different treatment is discussed. 

This book is written by an international group of European authors, and is aimed at neurovascular surgeons and neurosurgical residents.

Reviews

“With this book, the authors provide a useful vade mecum of one the most challenging cerebrovascular diseases, brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). … Intended for a young audience of specialists in the field, the book offers a synthetic picture of the current understanding and management of cerebral AVM for those who are first approaching this complex disease. … This book, encompassing different fields, provides a comprehensive knowledge base in cerebral AVM, adding a valuable resource to the current literature.” (Fady T. Charbel, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2018)

“This is an excellent text and atlas on the most serious of neurosurgical pathologies AVMs. … I recommend this book to all practicing and academic neurologists and neurosurgeons.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, November, 2017)
