Orthopedic If the doctor suspects you could have a brain aneurysm or arteriovenous malformation (AVM), our experts at IBS Hospital will stand ready to make sure you have a complete and accurate diagnosis and the best treatment available today.

When an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) occurs there is an entanglement of blood vessels in the brain that disrupt the flow of blood and oxygen to the spinal cord and brain. AVMs is usually a congenital defect. It is extremely difficult to diagnose as the symptoms could be seen only when the damage they cause to the brain or spinal cord reaches a critical level. When left untreated, AVMs have the potential of causing significant hemorrhage, which may lead to death. On the other hand, surgery on any part of the central nervous system carries its own risks.

With the state-of-the-art equipment such as computed tomography (CT) scan, MRA, MRI and a proper diagnosis with an exact position and severity of the rupture can be deduced.

If an aneurysm is reported, there are two treatment options. The first is craniotomy, in which a bone flap is removed from a section of the skull, to access the brain. The bone flap is replaced with tiny plates and screws after the procedure.

The second treatment is endovascular coiling, also known as coil embolization. In this procedure the surgeon guides a catheter though the arterial network until the tip of the catheter reaches the site of the AVM. Then a substance is introduced that will plug the fistula, correcting the abnormal pattern of blood flow.

The materials used to form an artificial blood clot in the center of an AVM comprise of fibered titanium coils, fast-drying biologically inert glues and tiny balloons. Since embolization usually does not permanently eliminate the AVM, it is generally used as an adjunct to surgery or to radiosurgery to lessen the blood flow through the AVM and make the surgery safer.
