Abstract

Large extracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are considered rare. Most of these lesions appear as soft tissue masses or as bleeding. Symptoms relate to the tumor site. The clinical diagnosis of AVM should be confirmed by selective angiography. The preferred technique for carotid angiography is selective catheterization by the retrograde femoral approach based on Seldinger's method.
