Cerebral venous angiomas

Surg Neurol. 1979 May;11(5):385-9.


The literature on venous angiomas is generally confusing, although recent reports confirm the existence of this entity. A survey of the published cases, with addition of two of our own, is presented in the current study. Characteristic histological and angiographic features are described. The value of radioisotope techniques is emphasized with regard to the modifications which these angiomas cause in cerebral circulation.
