Areas that research this condition
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in brain and nervous system conditions (neurologists), brain and nervous system surgery (neurosurgeons), and other areas study clinical and laboratory research related to prevention, causes, diagnosis and treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas and other neurological conditions.
Mayo Clinic doctors and surgeons also study minimally invasive techniques in dural arteriovenous fistula surgery. Read more about research in neurology and neurosurgery.
Mayo Clinic researchers study advanced treatments such as Onyx and other liquid embolic agents. These liquids are injected into the dAVF to form a clot and block the fistula. Recent research includes examinations of the effectiveness and impact of these liquid embolism treatments combined with earlier detection in improving patient outcomes.
See a list of publications on dural arteriovenous fistulas by Mayo Clinic doctors on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
