Multimodality treatment is essential for the management of particularly high-grade intracranial AVMs. The recent introduction of the Onyx system provides deeper and more profound embolization of the AVM nidus compared with NBCA (N-butyl cyanoacrylate). Successful embolization with Onyx makes the following resection safer and easier, based on our initial experience of 13 patients. Preoperative embolization with Onyx seems very useful in the surgical management of AVMs.
