demonstrate obliteration at 3 years. For our literature review, a PubMed search was performed using the terms “arteriovenous fistula,” “dural arteriovenous fistula,” “dAVF,” “SRS,” and “radiosurgery.” Identified publications were reviewed for obliteration rates, post-SRS hemorrhage rates, transient clinical worsening, and permanent clinical worsening at follow-up. We additionally extracted these parameters for DAVFs stratified by location and drainage pattern, gathering ample information about cavernous, transverse-sigmoid, and tentorial AVFs, as well as those with and

S pinal dural arteriovenous fistulas are the most frequent vascular malformation in the spine and account for approximately 70% of all spinal vascular malformations. 8 , 17 At least 80% of patients are male, and more than 66% of patients are in their 6th or 7th decade of life, indicating a preponderance of male and older patients. 6 Generally thought to be an acquired lesion, this fistula is located within the dura mater where the arterial blood from radiculomeningeal arteries enters a radicular vein. 10 , 11 , 13 The arterialized venous system will

TerBrugge , M.D. Toronto Western Hospital Ontario, Canada 1486 1487 Abstract Object. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of radiosurgery for the treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) located in the region of the transverse—sigmoid sinus. Methods. A series of 20 patients with DAVFs located in the

We describe the unique case of a patient presenting
