Conference paper


The best treatment for arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is their total removal. However, in deeply seated or large AVMs, total resection is not only difficult but also hazardous. Moreover, the surgical results of deep or large AVMs are not always satisfactory and vary depending on the surgical indication, methods, and surgeon’s technical experiences.
