Radiosurgical ablation of spinal cord arteriovenous malformations. Handbook of clinical neurology Sussman, E. S., Adler, J. R., Dodd, R. L. 2017; 143: 175-187


Spinal cord arteriovenous malformations (SCAVMs) are rare entities that account for less than 20% of spinal masses. These lesions represent a unique clinical challenge, in that surgical or endovascular treatment is often associated with devastating functional consequences. Over the past few decades, radiosurgery has become a well-established treatment modality for SCAVMs, and may be a first-line treatment in many patients afflicted with this devastating disease. This chapter summarizes the data available regarding radiosurgical treatment of SCAVMs.
