What is Arteriovenous Malformation?

Description of the disease

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an abnormality of the blood vessel system, in which arteries are directly connected to veins, bypassing capillaries. This can lead to circulation problems and, in some cases, to bleeding.


  • By location: cutaneous, cerebral, visceral, etc.
  • By size: small, medium, large.


Symptoms of AVM may include headaches, seizures, paralysis, and bleeding from the nose or other parts of the body.


The causes of AVM are not fully understood, but genetic factors may play a role in its development.


AVM can be diagnosed using MRI, CT scans, angiography, and other imaging methods.


Treatment for AVM may include surgical intervention, radiosurgery, embolization, and other methods aimed at blocking or removing the anomaly.


Since the causes of AVM are not fully understood, there are no specific prevention methods. However, attention should be paid to heredity and regular screenings to detect anomalies.


AVM treatment is carried out by neurosurgeons, radiologists, neuroradiologists, and other specialized physicians.
