Spinal cord vascular malformations are vessel disorders involving, directly or indirectly, the spinal cord tissue. Their management and treatment remain complex and require a deep knowledge of the “lesional” and regional anatomy. The object of this chapter is to explain the vascular embryology, the anatomy of the spinal cord and the treatment of vascular malformations such as arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas and aneurysms.
