Here, we investigated the expression and activation of these proteins in cerebral arteriovenous malformation (cAVM).
Arteriovenous fistulas are the preferred surgical method for establishing vascular access in patients who require hemodialysis, due to a lower rate of infection and clot formation, and better outcomes compared to other current types of vascular access.
For objective evaluation of the described lesion, we performed digital subtraction angiography (DSA), which showed a plexiform arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in the right temporal lobe with numerous feeding arteries running from the lateral thalamostriatal perforators, as well as from both trunks of the insular segment of the right middle cerebral artery (M2) (Fig.
