Eman A shakir, Ahmed A Salam, Ahmed Adnan Al Juboori.

Abstract
Objective: Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are inborn errors and benign lesions, majorly found in the young and healthy population. This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) in the management of AVMs and to predict any complications during the 12 months post therapy.
Material and Methods: We reviewed 105 patients who were treated with GKRS for intracranial AVMs between January 2016 and March 2018. Participants included 48 male and 57 female patients with a mean age of 27 years. AVM volumes were assessed using MRI at every 3 months.
Results: The results of this study revealed a significant shrinkage in the volume of the AVMs, in particular, for those with less than 3 cm3 with P < 0.0001.
Conclusion: GKRS is considerably efficient in the treatment of AVMs.

Key words: Arteriovenous malformations, Radiosurgery, Gamma Knife
