Abstract: Surgical excision has excellent outcome in treatment of scalp AVM. Pre-operative embolization reduces vascularity and helps in easy identification of AVM during surgery thus achieving complete excision. The size of AVM has no correlation with the number of feeding vessels. There are high chances of recurrence in large AVM after embolization.
