Abstract

Treating patients with brain arteriovenous malformations by the deposition of liquid embolic agents, particularly cyanoacrylates, requires judgment, technical expertise, and experience. Even though the first deposition of cyanoacrylate in human brain arteries occurred more than 25 years ago, the relative rarity of the disease and the high risk for complications has kept this procedure from being universally applied. Physicians are fortunate that, within the past year, new and better catheters have become available, and with the promise of approved cyanoacrylate devices that are now being evaluated, the future looks bright. This article reviews the history, chemistry, and uses of cyanoacrylate.
