Abstract

The problem of surgical treatment of patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the cerebral vessels is one of the most pressing in vascular neurosurgery. According to current data, the risk of fatality after the first hemorrhage from an AVM of the large cerebral hemispheres varies from 10% to 35%, and after the recurrence of hemorrhage 20%; disability is noted in almost 40% of those patients who survive.1–6 If one considers that most cerebral AVMs appear after spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage in young adults, it is possible to understand the need for surgical treatment of such patients. The danger of hemorrhage from AVMs located in the deep structures of the brain and, in part, from corpus callosum AVMs substantially increases owing to the closeness of the ventricle system and the functionally important subcortical structures.7 Corpus callosum AVMs are relatively rare constituting from 5.0% to 14.5% of all AVMs in all sites,8,9; according to data gathered at the Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery the figure is 5.4%.
