An AVM Cured With Embolization

Featured Cases

A view looking at a brain AVM from the front. An AVM is a tangle of small vessels that serve as an abnormal, high-flow connection between arteries and veins. This patient suffered bleeding from this AVM.
   
A side view of the same AVM. This AVM was treated by embolization-using a microcatheter to inject nBCA (glue) into the abnormal vessels to permanently block them off.
   
A magnified side view of the AVM.
   
A side view of the AVM, injecting x-ray dye ("contrast") through the microcatheter that has been steered through the blood vessels to the AVM.
   
Unsubtracted image of the glue cast in the AVM.
   
Lateral view, early phase of the final result-the AVM is completely cured by the embolization with nBCA.
   
Lateral view, late phase, showing no flow in the AVM after successful embolization.
