Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Treatment for congenital arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of peripheral vessel is a challenge. In unresectable AVM, embolization is an alternative treatment modality. We report two cases of large AVMs at lower extremities. Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) was done after attempted surgery which was complicated by persistent wound oozing and poor wound healing. Polyvinyl alcohol particles and gelfoam pledgets were used as embolizing materials. The outcome is satisfactory without complication.
