Surgical Indication and Approach to Deep-Seated Arteriovenous Malformation
Total extirpation of the nidus is fundamentally the best choice for treatment of intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). It is never acceptable, however, to allow a persistent postoperative deficit to develop, which would burden the patient after surgery . The only exception is when the patient is in a critical condition.
