The Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) module variables consist of patient demographics, patient history, procedure and post-op, with a separate follow-up section.
Inclusion & Clinical Description:
Endovascular, surgical and radiosurgical procedures for the treatment of cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM). Each procedure may be performed as the sole treatment of an AVM, but they are often performed in combination with one another. Endovascular procedures include embolization of AVM arterial feeders employing a variety of agents, including: Onyx, NBCA, PVA and coils. Surgical procedures include complete AVM resection, partial AVM resection, hematoma evacuation, and aneurysm clipping. Radiosurgical procedures include irradiation of the entire nidus or of a portion of the nidus.
Follow-up is captured immediately after treatment, 30 days and up to 3 years after treatment (in the case of radiosurgery), with the goal of achieving 100% follow-up, minimum 80% follow-up rate required.
