New Arteriographic Classification of AVM Based on the Yakes Classification System
The world’s literature certainly verifies the extreme challenges in the diagnosis and treatment of AVMs. The purpose of this chapter is to present a new Yakes AVM Classification System that has proven therapeutic implications to effectively treat complex AVMs in any anatomical area. By employing the Yakes AVM Classification System, a physician is now able to accurately classify AVMs and determine specific endovascular treatment strategies to consistently treat AVMs, and patients can enjoy long-term excellent outcomes. Defining the angioarchitecture of the high-flow AVM determines accurately the endovascular management strategy to best permanently ablate the AVM requiring treatment.
