Abstract

Since 1983, we have experienced endovascular treatment of intracranial AVMs.2)3) Superselective catheterization of feeding artery, embolization or feeding artery occlusion of the cerebral AVMs have been performed for 73 cases in 134 sessions. Endovascular treatment of intracranial AVMs such as embolization or feeding artery occlusion have been performed for 57 cases of AVMs in 95 sessions. In each time, endovascular approach was performed for two to five feeding arteries, so more than 300 feeding arteries were catheterized by microcatheters or balloon catheters. In this report, we present our experiences of endovascular treatment of intracranial AVMs and discuss embolic materials and the role of endovascular treatment of intracranial. AVMs.
