abstract

  • Hypofractionated conformal stereotactic radiotherapy may be an important alternative to single-fraction radiotherapy in patients with large AVMs or AVMs located in eloquent areas, because it allows the administration of a higher radiation dose than is possible to deliver in single-fraction radiosurgery. With our technique of hypofractionated conformal stereotactic radiotherapy, the rate of obliterating AVMs was comparable to that of single-dose radiosurgery, although the volumes of the irradiated AVMs in our study were larger than those reported previously.
