Abstract

Pelvic arteriovenous malformations (PAV-Ms) are rare disorders traditionally diagnosed by conventional angiography. Breath-hold three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography (3D-Gd-MRA) is a state-of-the-art alternative for vascular imaging. We describe the 3D-Gd-MRA findings in two patients with PAVMs. The 3D-Gd-MRA approach provides a noninvasive and versatile method for evaluation of PAVMs that enables both angiographic assessment of the malformations and evaluation of visceral involvement, which can preclude surgical intervention.
