Galenic dural arteriovenous fistula in neurofibromatosis type 1 treated with Onyx.

We present an unusual case of GDAVF in a 37-year-old man with NF1. The fistula drained directly to the vein of Galen through multiple feeders. Complete occlusion of the fistula was achieved through trans-arterial embolisation with Onyx (ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer) in a single treatment session. Deep venous drainage remained intact, and the patient recovered well. To our knowledge, this is the first report on complete closure of GDAVF with NF1 using trans-arterial embolisation. The preservation of functioning of the straight sinus may have contributed to the success of treatment. PMID: 31146620 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
