摘要

Objective: Seizure is the most common clinical presentation in patients with nonhemorrhagic brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs) and it influences their quality of life. Angioarchitectural analysis of the seizure risk for BAVMs is subjective and does not consider hemodynamics. This study aimed to investigate the angioarchitectural and hemodynamic factors that may be associated with seizure in patients with BAVMs. Methods: From 2011 to 2019, 104 patients with supratentorial BAVMs without previous hemorrhage or treatment were included and grouped according to the initial presentation of seizure. Their angiograms and MRI results were analyzed for morphological characteristics and quantitative digital subtraction angiography (QDSA) parameters. Modified cerebral circulation time (mCCT) was defined as the difference between the bolus arrival time of the ipsilateral cavernous internal carotid artery and the parietal vein on lateral DSA. Logistic regression analysis was performed to estimate the odds ratio (OR) for BAVMs presenting with seizure. Results: The seizure group had shorter mCCT (1.98 s vs. 2.44 s, p = 0.005) and more BAVMs with temporal location (45% vs. 30.8%, p = 0.013), neoangiogenesis (55% vs. 33%, p = 0.03), and long draining veins (95% vs. 72%, p = 0.004) than did the nonseizure group. Shorter mCCT (OR: 3.4, p = 0.02), temporal location (OR: 13.4, p < 0.001), and neoangiogenesis (OR: 4.7, p = 0.013) were independently associated with higher risks of seizure, after adjustments for age, gender, BAVM volume, and long draining vein. Conclusions: Shorter mCCT, temporal location, and neoangiogenesis were associated with epileptic BAVMs. QDSA can objectively evaluate hemodynamic changes in epileptic BAVMs. Key Points: • Quantitative digital subtraction angiography may be used to evaluate the hemodynamic differences between brain arteriovenous malformations presenting with and without seizure. • BAVMs with temporal location, neoangiogenesis, and shortened cerebral circulation time were more likely to present with seizure.
