Treatment of Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM)
      - UCLA Neurosurgery

Published on Jun 2, 2014

SSTattler: Takes approximate 40 minutes but excellent lecture... !!

Neil Martin, MD, chair of the UCLA Department of Neurosurgery and co-director of the UCLA Stroke Center, discusses new treatments for arteriovenous malformation (AVM), an abnormal collection of tangled blood vessels in the brain that can cause hemorrhage and stroke. Dr. Martin reviews minimally invasive procedures such as an endovascular embolization and stereotactic radiosurgery, and current UCLA clinical trials to prevent stroke.

Brain Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) | William’s Story

Published on Aug 3, 2015

When William learned his headaches were caused by a complex AVM (an abnormal tangle of vessels in the brain) and multiple associated brain aneurysms, he traveled to see neurosurgeon Geoffrey Colby at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. After many delicate procedures over five months to block blood vessels of the AVM, followed by a major brain surgery to remove the AVM, William is now back living his life to the fullest.

Nichole's Story: Surviving a Brain AVM - Mayo Clinic

Published on May 22, 2015

Debilitating headaches, seizures and memory issues led Nichole Trahan to Mayo Clinic where doctors found a brain arteriovenous malformation, a cerebrovascular disorder. Close to her speech center, Nichole feared never communicating with her 7-year-old daughter again. But thanks to coordinated care at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., today Nichole is back to an active life as a mom and entrepreneur. Find out why Mayo Clinic is the best place for your care: Brain AVM (arteriovenous malformation).

Endovascular Transarterial Embolization of Cerebral AVM
         With Ethylene-Vinyl Alcohol Copolymer

Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) have an estimated 2--4% annual risk of hemorrhage. Treatment options for AVMs include microsurgical resection, stereotactic radiosurgery, and endovascular embolization. As endovascular technology and techniques continue to advance and mature, endovascular embolization is becoming an increasingly vital component of AVM treatment not only as a presurgical treatment to reduce microsurgical risks, but also as a stand-alone curative method in some cases. This case illustrates the successful and curative transarterial embolization of a right frontal AVM in a 17-year-old boy with ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx).
