A 15-year-old girl applied to the outpatient clinic with an arteriovenous malformation, measuring approximately 20 cm × 10 cm, on the anterior aspect of the right knee. She was admitted to operation because of the failure of the previous embolization attempts. Intraoperatively, there was uncontrolled bleeding from the nidus which is located at the medulla of the tibia. After the failure of initial efforts, hemostasis could be achieved using polymethylmethacrylate cement. Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) may cause life-threatening bleeding. In uncontrolled intraosseous bleeding, bone cement could be used for hemostasis. In this study, we present an AVM case and our experience about its management.
