Colour Doppler ultrasound was used to localise an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and its major feeding vessel intraoperatively. The successful ligation and division of this vessel could be confirmed with confidence on colour Doppler ultrasound. The malformation immediately became less turgid and was completely excised. Colour Doppler ultrasound was a valuable adjunct in the localisation and excision of this AVM and has application to AVM surgery in general.
