Surgical treatment of arteriovenous malformations of the buttock

For symptomatic buttock arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), embolization techniques and surgical resection have been suggested as treatment options. Our aim was to evaluate the feasibility and long-term results after a single surgical resection. Twelve patients had undergone surgical resection without preoperative embolization. Of the 12 patients, 11 had had incomplete procedures, 9 of whom had undergone arterial embolization 1 to 3 years previously. All the patients were symptomatic. Computed tomography scans showed AVMs located in the cellular spaces with preservation of the gluteal muscle. The median follow-up time was 80 months. On the last follow-up computed tomography scan, 67% had had no residual AVM. The use of preoperative embolization, especially with non-resorbable embolic material (Onyx; Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland), makes AVM resection and imaging follow-up more difficult because of artifacts and should be avoided.
