Abstract

Spinal arteriovenous shunts (AVS) can be separated according to their location. Several entities can thus be recognized:
  • Intradural: spinal cord arteriovenous malformations (SCAVM), perimedullary fistulae, radicular AVMs, and filum terminale AVMs;

  • Epidural (including paraspinal): epidural AVMs, paraspinal AVMs (PSAVMs), vertebro-vertebral fistula and maxillary arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) [11].
