Mandibular arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rare and potentially life-threatening vascular lesions. Surgery, embolization, or bone cement implantation is an option for the treatment of mandibular AVMs. We present a case of huge mandibular AVM refractory to multiple embolizations of the supplying arteries, which was treated with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement implantation after the extraction of a molar tooth.
