Arteriovenous Malformations

  • Albrecht G. Harders


There have been numerous studies on the clinical manifestation and the natural history of cerebral arteriovenous malformations [71, 125, 159]. Contraindications for surgery for AVMs include advanced age, absence of symptoms, and an unfavorable location of the lesion. Surgery is indicated when the patient is younger, has seizures which do not respond to medication, when the AVM is favorably located, and when there is intracerebral space-occupying bleeding from the angioma [157].
