OBJECTIVE The authors aimed to design a score for stratifying patients with brain arteriovenous malformation (BAVM) rupture, based on the likelihood of a poor long-term neurological outcome. METHODS The records of consecutive patients with BAVM hemorrhagic events who had been admitted over a period of 11 years were retrospectively reviewed. Independent predictors of a poor long-term outcome (modified Rankin Scale score ≥ 3) beyond 1 year after admission were identified. A risk stratification scale was developed and compared with the intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) score to predict poor outcome and inpatient mortality...

BACKGROUND: Spinal arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rare lesions that may cause serious neurologic morbidity. With developments in endovascular technology and embolic materials, endovascular management of spinal AVMs has gained popularity. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 61-year-old woman presented with the worst headache of her life and an acute onset of nausea and vomiting and was shown to have a grade 2 subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) on computed tomography scan. A 6-vessel cerebral angiogram was negative for any vascular abnormalities...

OBJECTIVE Brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are the most common cause of spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage in pediatric patients (age < 18 years). Since the cumulative lifetime risk of AVM hemorrhage is considerable in children, an improved understanding of the risk factors influencing hemorrhagic presentation may aid in the management of pediatric AVMs. The aims of this first of a 2-part multicenter, retrospective cohort study are to evaluate the incidence and determine the predictors of hemorrhagic presentation in pediatric AVM patients...

OBJECTIVE Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an intracranial vascular disorder. Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) is used in conjunction with intraarterial embolization to eradicate the nidus of AVMs. Clinical results indicate that patients with prior embolization tend to gain less benefit from GKRS. The authors hypothesized that this was partly caused by dosimetric deficiency. The actual dose delivered to the target may be smaller than the intended dose because of increased photon attenuation by high-density embolic materials...

Venous hypertension(VH) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and is closely associated with the HIF-1α/VEGF signaling pathway. Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2(Nrf2) significantly influences angiogenesis; however, the interplay between Nrf2 and VEGF under VH in brain AVMs remains unclear. Therefore, our study aimed to investigate the interplay between Nrf2 and VEGF due to VH in brain AVMs. Immunohistochemistry indicated that Nrf2 and VEGF were highly expressed in human brain AVM tissues...

BACKGROUND Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are rare vascular diseases becoming more frequently diagnosed. Most patients with DVAs have no clinical symptoms with the exception of a few patients with epilepsy, intracranial hemorrhage, or neuro-function deficit. There is still controversy with respect to treatment strategies for symptomatic DVAs. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-three cases of symptomatic DVAs from January 2006 to October 2015 were retrospectively reviewed and the imaging characteristics of DVAs by CT, MRI, and DSA and the treatment modalities for DVAs were studied...

OBJECTIVES: Time-of-arrival (TOA) maps can be derived from high-resolution 4-dimensional (4D) contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) data sets to provide a quantitative description of contrast material arrival time in each voxel. This information can further be processed to create a compressed time evolution curve that virtually shortens the contrast bolus (virtual bolus [VB]). The purpose of this project was to determine whether TOA-enhanced 4D MRA and/or VB imaging improve the display of contrast kinetics in patients with vascular disease...

Intracranial arteriovenous shunts (ICAVSs) in young children are characterized with frequent high flow fistulas. In association of high flow fistulas and physiological condition of the developing brain and heart, each disease tends to present at a certain age with unique symptoms. Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation (VGAM) and dural sinus malformation (DSM) with arteriovenous (AV) shunts tend to present in neonate with high output cardiac failure. In infancy, VGAM, pial AVF and infantile dural AVF tend to present with hydrodynamic disorder such as macrocephaly, ventriculomegaly, prominent facial veins, and developmental delay...

Treatment selection for patients 60years of age and older with intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), requires careful consideration of the natural history and post-treatment hemorrhagic risk. We aimed to directly compare the natural history of AVMs with post-treatment hemorrhagic risk in this population. We retrospectively reviewed our AVM database of 683 patients. Patients ⩾60years at diagnosis were included. Treatment modality was divided into four groups: surgery±embolization (SE), radiosurgery±embolization (RE), embolization only (Emb), and observation (Obs)...

A 35-year-old male presented with headaches and was found to have a Spetzler-Martin grade 2 right occipital arteriovenous malformation (AVM) with single, superficial draining vein. The patient opted to undergo embolization for possible cure with resection scheduled in the event complete obliteration was not achieved. Three weeks later, angiography during his embolization procedure revealed that the AVM had spontaneously obliterated; no treatment was required. In conjunction with prior case reports/series, this patient highlights the need for current imaging prior to proceeding with intervention to confirm that spontaneous obliteration has not occurred between diagnosis and treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Incompletely obliterated intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) after initial treatment with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) can be treated with a repeat session of SRS. However, the relative efficacy of repeat vs initial SRS is not well defined. The goal of this retrospective case-control study is to compare the outcomes of repeat vs initial SRS for the treatment of matched cohorts comprising angioarchitecturally similar AVMs. METHODS: We evaluated a prospective database of AVM patients treated with SRS from 1989 to 2013...
