Brain Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM) - Surgical Treatment

Case Examples:

This is a 22 year-old man who suffered from a seizure disorder. Investigations, including an MRI of the brain and an angiogram, revealed a large AVM. He elected to have this AVM removed surgically because of the risk of bleeding from this AVM over his lifetime.

Pre-Treatment:

Pre-operative two dimensional angiogram showing the AVM (red arrow).

   

Three dimensional angiogram showing the same AVM (arrow). This angiogram permits a more detailed view of the AVM and the blood vessels that surround it.

   

View of the same AVM from a different angle, made possible by rotating the 3D model.

Post-Treatment:

Post operative two dimensional angiogram showing that the AVM has been removed.

   

Angiogram from a different angle, showing that the AVM has been removed.
