Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We present an unusual and complex arteriovenous malformation involving the vertebral artery, subclavian artery, and internal jugular vein in a 31-year-old man with no history of trauma or catheterization. The repair was done using endovascular techniques to minimize complications from nerve or vascular injury. The massively dilated jugular vein has remained diminished in size and the patient has remained asymptomatic at 8 months. We discuss the occurrence of this rare malformation as well as treatment options along with their risks and benefits.
