Abstract

The operation for an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) other than a small superficial one is one of the most difficult neurosurgical procedures. The technical difficulty depends on the size and location of the lesion. The larger the AVM is, the more difficult is the operation. Even when it is small, great care is needed when it is deeply located, especially if it is close to a critical area.
