Vascular Malformations of the Brain
Vascular malformations of the central nervous system present an interesting group of disorders to the neuroradiologist. The term covers a spectrum of abnormalities, some of which represent an extreme variant of normal anatomical disposition, and others which require treatment. Methods of investigation are therefore tailored to the expected outcome for the patient. Some of the vascular malformations are associated with vascular pathology elsewhere in the body and are a reflection of a generalised disorder of vascular modelling and repair. This should be borne in mind when developing a strategy for investigation.
