Artery of Davidoff and Schechter Supply in Dural Arteriovenous Fistulas

Artery of Davidoff and Schechter Supply in Dural Arteriovenous Fistulas CLINICAL REPORT INTERVENTIONAL Artery of Davidoff and Schechter Supply in Dural Arteriovenous Fistulas K.D. Bhatia, H. Kortman, T. Wälchli, I. Radovanovic, V.M. Pereira, and T. Krings ABSTRACT SUMMARY: The artery of Davidoff and Schechter is a dural branch of the posterior cerebral artery that can supply the meninges close to the falcotentorial junction. It is usually not identified on angiography except when enlarged in the setting of a dural AVF or meningioma. The impact on treatment of the artery of Davidoff and Schechter supply to a fistula is not well-described in the literature. Our retrospective analysis of patients with dural AVFs treated at the Toronto Western Hospital between 2006 and 2018 identified 6 patients with dural AVFs receiving supply from artery of Davidoff and Schechter (of a total of 173 patients with dural AVFs). All patients were initially treated by transarterial embolization using liquid embolic agents. Three patients required a second endovascular procedure partly due to residual supply from artery of Davidoff and Schechter, and in all cases, angiographic cure was obtained. The treatment approach, challenges encountered, and potential complications of treating such fistulas are described.
