Clinical case: We present the case of a ruptured thalamic arteriovenous malformation treated successfully with transvenous embolization using Onyx, achieving complete obliteration of the nidus.
Conclusion: In selected cases, transvenous embolization is an option for the treatment of arteriovenous malformations
