Endovascular Embolization of a Spinal Arteriovenous Fistula
Abstract: Spinal arteriovenous fistulas are rare formations with severe clinical symptoms and consequences, if left untreated. Over the past few decades, considerable progress has been made for the clarifying and correct interpretation of these lesions by conducting selective angiographies. Good knowledge of anatomical characteristics and pathophysiology of spinal arteriovenous fistulas has led to the development and implementation of endovascular treatment of this pathology. The development and evolution of diagnostic procedures, interventional treatment and surgery have contributed to the more effective treatment of spinal arteriovenous fistulas. We present a clinical case from our experience in endovascular treatment of spinal arteriovenous malformations.
