Modern, the remedy of arteriovenous racemose angiomas of the mind is still unsatisfactory. Intraoperative hemorrhages, post-embolizational or postoperative deficits looking on the location and dimension of the A VM in addition to inoperability of infrequent angioma kinds have promoted the technical development of diagnostic and healing techniques. however, a few pathophysiological difficulties of A VM hemodynamics haven't been solved. Many angiographical reports, observations in the course of embolization and operation, dopplersonographical and different perfusion measurements supplied a few perception. adequate animal types have not begun to be built with a view to elucidate the pathophysiological mechanisms. This monograph describes A V fistula types in cats and rats, either traditional and newly built, which permit a greater comparability with human cerebral angiomas than past ones. crucial result's that the version of the leap forward of arterial strain waves into the capillaries following a failure of cerebrovascular legislation can't be proven. quite, based on the findings in precapillary vessels offered right here, the rules features commonly in order that a breakdown of law can't be accountable for worldwide mind edema usually visible after elimination of angiomas. The law used to be proven utilizing assorted equipment, most crucial of which being the CO reaction of two mind vessels to various CO contents of the inhaled air. Angiographical, dopplersonographical and a pair of perioperative dopplersonographical in addition to intraoperative measurements of stream and strain were utilized.
