Abstract: Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are neurovascular disorders that occur mainly in young adults. Their clinical presentation is variable and depends on its location, size and occurrence of bleeding. They can represent incidental findings in neuro radiological exams. The treatment of these lesions when located in eloquent areas, namely around the central sulcus, is controversial, with different therapeutical approaches presented in the literature. We consider that surgical extirpation of many of these lesions is feasible in selected cases, when supported by profound anatomical knowledge and refined microsurgical technique, achieving cure with minimal aditional deficit. In the present article, we elaborate a surgical technique for the approach of AVMs located in the central sulcus, specially in finding the topographic lesion location and craniotomy.
