Aneurysmal Dilatation of Anterior Cranial Fossa Dural Arteriovenous Fistula: Three Cases

Zheng Liu, Bangqing Yuan

Abstract


Aneurysmal dilatation of anterior cranial fossa dural arteriovenous fistula is a rare malformation with a unique and complex angio-architecture profile. Clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment management of three patients with the malformation were retrospectively analyzed. Preoperative examinations revealed all three patients suffered from aneurysmal dilatation; two of them were treated with surgical clipping of the fistula as well as removing of the aneurysm, and cured; one patient died of delayed surgical operation and other complications in two weeks. MRI examination could be used for early diagnosis and cerebral angiography could further confirm the diagnosis. To achieve a favorable outcome for patients the malformation has to be treated as early as possible by surgery or interventional therapy.
