The authors present a consecutive series of 81 patients admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery of Korea University and Ewha Woman's University with an intracranial arteriovenous malformation(AVM). Of these, 56 received surgical treatment, and 23 were treated conservatively. We have reviewed the modes of clinical presentations, result of diagnostic evaluation, and surgical consideration. Partial of total removal of the AVM was performed in all but 7 of the patients treated surgically. Operative mortality in this surgical series was 9%, with significant morbidity in 20%.
