Malformations and Aneurysmal Dilation of the Lesser and Greater Veins of Galen and the Medial Prosencephalic Vein
During the past 10 years diagnostics have, once more, set the pace for and established the basis upon which treatment of what has heretofore been considered an ominous, if not incurable clinical entity, has been structured. The detailed angiographic (arteriographic) analyses of the vascular alterations (malformative, ectatic, fistulous) first reported by Raybaud and subsequently elaborated upon and put into clinical perspective by Lasjaunias, have brought us to a point where we may now understand and treat properly both the vascular alterations and their secondary complications.
