Total removal of an intramedullary cavernous angioma by transthoracic approach.Ital J Neurol Sci. 1998 Jun; 19(3):176-9.IJ
Intramedullary cavernous angiomas are rare vascular malformations; all published cases have been surgically approached posteriorly by standard laminectomy. We describe the case of a 63-year-old man with an intramedullary cavernous angioma, anteriorly located in the thoracic spinal cord. The angioma was operated on by transthoracic approach and totally removed.
