Type A intradural spinal arteriovenous fistula

Case report

Restricted access

✓ In this report, the authors present the case of a patient with a unique type of spinal arteriovenous fistula. Both the location and venous angioarchitecture of this variant are uncommon, making diagnosis of the lesion challenging and raising particular management issues. The authors discuss this unusual lesion and describe its imaging features and surgical findings, as well as highlight its pathological abnormalities.

Abbreviations used in this paper:ASA = anterior spinal artery; AVF = arteriovenous fistula; AVM = arteriovenous malformation.
