Causes

More about Treatment

The treatment of brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is challenging based on a multidisciplinary approach involving neurosurgery, radiosurgery, and interventional neuroradiology. The embolization of brain AVMS was for a long time performed using particles and glue. Onyx has been recently introduced in the armamentarium for AVM embolization, but large, multicenter evaluation is lacking. BRAVO study was conducted to evaluate the clinical and anatomical results of brain AVM embolization with Onyx.

FAQ
