Rights and Permissions

The clinical characteristics of aggressive craniocervical junction dural arteriovenous fistula (CCJDAVF) and effect treatment was studied in four patients and all four patients were treated endovascularly with liquid embolic agents. Post-embolization angiography documented complete obliteration in one patient and partial obliteration in the other three patients. All patients had good recovery without any procedure-related complications. Endovascular embolization can be used to reduce the rate of flow through CCJDAVFs or as a definitive treatment when the fistula is accessible endovascularly.
