Abstract

Spinal vascular malformations are difficult to diagnose lesions that can be associated with significant permanent morbidity. The angioarchitecture of spinal vascular anatomy and the associated pathologies have only recently been illuminated by the advent of spinal angiography. However, conventional spinal digital subtraction angiography is often limited by significant variability, overlapping vessels, as well as an inability to understand the precise location of the nidus or fistula in relation to the spinal cord and spine. In this study, we present 4 unique cases wherein 3-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) with dual volume acquisition was useful in defining the anatomy of spinal fistulas as well as planning treatment.
