The Toronto Brain Vascular Malformation Study Group is dedicated to the study and multidisciplinary care of Neurological conditions affecting, or arising from, the blood vessels of the brain. The group was started in 1989, and is led by Neurosurgeons, Interventional Neuroradiologists, Radiation Oncologists and Acute Care Nurse Practitioners.

Our Goals Are:

  • To provide excellent care to our patients

  • To improve our profession's understanding of the disorders that afflict our patients

  • To provide leading-edge, innovative treatments for our patients

  • To carry out basic research that will translate into future treatments.

 

Clinical Activity:
Our clinical group is composed of Neurosurgeons, Interventional Neuroradiologists, Radiation Oncologists and Acute Care Nurse Practitioners.
Group members take care of patients through:

  • Referrals to The Vascular Malformation Clinic

  • Referrals to the hospital

  • Referrals to individual group members, who then see the patients in the clinic.

Treatment of acutely ill patients is undertaken within the hospital. Patients who are not acutely ill are treated as outpatients. All patients are seen by several members of the group on each visit, and their cases are discussed by all members of the group at our clinic conference sessions in order to arrive at treatment recommendations based on the group's collective opinions.

Research Activity:
Each member of our group is also involved in clinical and/or basic research in the area of cerebrovascular disease. Research is conducted by the group members, their students, residents, and post-doctoral trainees.
