Abstract

The management of cerebral AVMs has been improved and extended by the advent of endovascular embolization techniques which represent preoperative or preradiosurgical procedures. This makes it possible to achieve a reduction in the size of the AVM; sometimes an improvement in progressive neurological deficits, if present, can be expected. In this paper we report our experience with nine cases of cerebral AVMs, in which embolization was attempted as a primary preoperative therapeutic method in order to reduce intraoperative bleeding.
