s: The incidence of Multiple cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) s ranges from 0.23 to 4.9% in all AVM patients. Radiosurgery or embolization has been suggested as a useful modality added to the surgical treatment of patients with multiple cerebral AVMs. Material & Methods: A 27-year-female was admitted on Nov. 7. 2006. A Brain CT showed a right frontoparietal intracerebral hematoma. Cerebral angiography demonstrated two separate AVMs, one fed by the right MCA, the other fed by posterior circulation. GammaKnife (GK) Surgery was underwent.
2 years later, angiography revealed complete obliteration of two cerebral AVMs.
The therapeutic strategy for cerebral AVMs remains difficult, especially if there are multiple scattered lesions. In our case, GK Surgery is effective for multiple cerebral AVMs.
Key Words: Multiple cerebral AVMs, Radiosurgery.
