These guidelines were developed by consensus of a multidisciplinary panel of specialists interested in the evaluation and treatment of patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the CNS. The reporting criteria described will serve as a template for trial design and for clinical investigators who wish to report on endovascular therapy of cerebral AVMs. Direct comparison of various treatment paradigms is important to standardization of care, maximization of good treatment outcomes, assessment of new methods and technologies.
