Combined Endovascular and Microsurgical Treatment of a Complex Spinal Arteriovenous Fistula Associated With Cloves Syndrome in an Adult Patient
CLOVES (congenital lipomatous overgrowth, vascular malformations, epidermal nevi, and scoliosis/skeletal/spinal anomalies) syndrome is a congenital and almost exclusively pediatric syndrome associated with vascular malformations of the neuroaxis. We report the case of a complex spinal arteriovenous fistula in an adult woman with CLOVES syndrome treated using a multidisciplinary approach with endovascular embolization and microsurgical technique, and review the medical literature on this disease.
