Vascular Malformations of the Brain
Vascular Malformations include arteriovenous malformation, venous angioma, cavernous malformation, and capillary telangiectasia. Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) usually present with bleeding and seizures. Bleeding risk is 2-4%/per year over your lifetime. A bleeding event can be fatal. For this reason, AVM are best treated, particularly in younger patients. Treatment options include surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and endovascular embolization.
