 AVM Brain Surgery in Pune

 

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an abnormal tangle of blood vessels in the brain or spine that disrupts normal blood flow. It can lead to serious complications, including bleeding into the brain if the vessels rupture.

 

Symptoms of AVM :

1. Weakness or paralysis on one side of the body
2. Confusion, hallucinations, or dementia
3. Nausea and vomiting
4. Seizures
5. Headache
6. Loss of consciousness

 

Causes :

Doctors don’t know exactly what causes AVMs. You’re probably born with them, and they probably form while you’re still a baby in the womb. In very rare cases, they can be found in families.

 

How Common Is It?

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare condition characterized by abnormal connections between arteries and veins in the brain, spinal cord, or other parts of the body. In the brain, AVMs occur in about 3 out of every 1000 people. This means that about 0.3% of the population is affected.

 

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) Treatment

1. Surgery:

Surgical intervention involves the direct removal of the AVM nidus (the tangled mass of blood vessels).
Neurosurgeons carefully access the AVM site and excise it, aiming to prevent future bleeding and alleviate symptoms.

 

2. Radiosurgery:

Radiosurgery, also known as stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), delivers precisely targeted radiation to the AVM, causing it to gradually shrink and close off over time.
This non-invasive procedure is typically performed using advanced imaging techniques to pinpoint the AVM’s exact location.

 

3. Endovascular Embolization:

Endovascular embolization involves the insertion of a catheter into the blood vessels, typically through the groin, which is guided to the site of the AVM using imaging techniques such as angiography.
