Abstract

Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are high-pressure vascular lesions that can present formidable therapeutic challenges. One treatment option for these lesions is stereotactic radiosurgery, which may be used to provoke progressive thrombosis of the draining veins and subsequent obliteration of the AVM nidus. In this clinical image, we successfully demonstrate this therapeutic modality with the case of a 26-year-old man with a large frontal AVM, treated with stereotactic radiosurgery.
