In this procedure, the provider removes a portion of skull bone and resects an arteriovenous malformation, AVM, from the infratentorial region of the brain. This region is located below the tentorium cerebella, a fold of dura mater separating the cerebellum from the occipital and temporal lobes. This is surgery for a simple arteriovenous malformation, with a size 3cm or less, easily accessible, without deep venous drainage, and without involvement of areas of the cortex that relate to areas such as senses, speech, and language.
