Endovascular occlusion of high-flow intracranial arteriovenous shunts: technical note

Neuroradiology. 2007 Dec;49(12):1029-31. doi: 10.1007/s00234-007-0289-y. Epub 2007 Sep 6.


Endovascular closure of high-flow arteriovenous (AV) shunts in intracranial AV malformations or pial fistulas is technically challenging. In this paper, we illustrate two simple methods to occlude large high-flow AV shunts in a controlled manner.
