Abstract

Mandibular arteriovenous malformations(AVM) are relatively rare and potentially life threatening lesions. Surgical treatment consists of wide resection of the mandible, which is difficult and potentially hazardous due to significant blood loss during surgery. Therefore, some authors advocate that transvenous embolization may be a safer and more effective method in the treatment of mandibular AVM. We report a treatment case of mandibular AVM in a 9-year-old-girl for episodes of spontaneous bleeding for 6 days using by selective transarterial embolization ,direct puncture embolization and microcoil embolization.
