Embolization as the treatment for a life-threatening mandibular arteriovenous malformation



Embolization as the treatment for a life-threatening mandibular arteriovenous malformation



Journal of Craniofacial Surgery 21(2): 380-382



Mandibular arteriovenous malformation is a severe vascular pathological condition that may lead to life-threatening hemorrhages. In child and teenaged patients, a conservative treatment is preferred to avoid profuse blood loss and/or mutilating alterations in the still-growing patients' face. The aim of this article was to present a case of an 11-year-old boy with an arteriovenous malformation involving the left mandible and treated by means of endovascular embolization with direct lesional delivery of N-butyl-cyanoacrylate glue through transfemoral catheterization.
