The authors have updated a series of 166 prospectively followed unoperated symptomatic patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) of the brain.
Follow-up data were obtained for 160 (96%) of the original population, with a mean follow-up period of 23.7 years.
The rate of major rebleeding was 4.0% per year, and the mortality rate was 1.0% per year.
At follow-up review, 23% of the series were dead from AVM hemorrhage.
The combined rate of major morbidity and mortality was 2.7% per year.
