Abstract

We treated a neonatal infant who presented with heart failure and a giant torcular dural arteriovenous fistula by staged transtorcular embolization with two guidewires, 95 platinum microcoils, and tissue glues through a needle-size craniotomy. Blood loss was minimal. The patient was stable without heart failure after a three-staged embolization. The lesion disappeared on the follow-up angiography done at the age of 3 years. This is the first documented case of neonatal giant torcular dural arteriovenous malformation cured by interventional neuroradiology. The dilemma and strategy in managing this patient will be presented and discussed.
