Contribution of flow MRI in the therapeutic management of middle face high flow arteriovenous malformation: A case report

Abstract : Backround: The radiosurgical management of high flow arteriovenous malformations (HFAVM) in the "destructive" stage requires a precise hemodynamic and anatomical assessment. Patient and methods/case report: We report the case of a 32 years-old patient with a large ulcerated face HFAVM, on which Doppler ultrasound was impossible to perform. We show that, by combining 3D PCA and 2D CINE PC-MRI sequences, magnetic resonance imaging is capable to provide a complete morphometric and velocimetric mapping of the nidus and feeding arteries of the HFAVM. Conclusion: Although Doppler ultrasound is the reference examination in the HFAVM, Flow MRI without contrast agent provides an advantageous alternative to assess vascular pathologies and choose the therapeutic strategy.
