Arteriovenous Malformation of the Mandible: Review of Literature and Case History

November 1, 2001
Vascular malformations of the jaws can lead to disastrous complications, but there seems to be no consensus as to their treatment. The literature presents the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of these lesions, as well as the divergent views of the authors. Treatment by catheterization and embolization, with direct transosseous injection of cyanoacrylate, appears to be the least harmful and most permanent treatment in certain conditions, as evidenced by the case of this 9-year-old patient having a high-flow mandibular vascular malformation.

MeSH Key Words: arteriovenous malformations/diagnosis; arteriovenous malformations/therapy; case report; mandible/blood supply
