Preoperative embolization is often considered mandatory in highly vascularised brain tumors to contain blood loss. However, not all lesions are amenable of endovascular preoperative embolization. In literature only preoperative endovascular embolization techniques are reported, while there is no report of intraoperative procedures for those cases not amenable of 'classical' preoperative endovascular treatment.
