Part of the Contemporary Perspectives in Neurosurgery book series (COPENEU)


Although well recognized as clinical entities, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and other vascular anomalies of the brain and its membranes occur infrequently. Their widely variation in etiology, overall size, location, feeding and draining vessels, histology, and course make it difficult to determine their prognosis and best treatment.
