Embolization Treatment of Dural Arteriovenous Malformations (DAVM)
In this form of treatment, a liquid, non-reactive glue is injected into the
dural AVM to block off the feeding arteries. There is only a minute risk to this
procedure. We know that the chance of completely curing the dural AVM using this
technique is low, but it is an excellent method of reducing the symptoms such as
noise or pain due to dural AVM.
Your doctor will recommend the best treatment for you and this will be, in part,
determined by your symptoms, and by the size and location of your dural AVM.
Many dural AVMs do not require treatment.
