What is Arteonenous Malformation?

An arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an atypical linkage between arteries and veins, forming a complex tangle that disturbs the supply of oxygenated blood to neighbouring cells and tissues. In some cases, an AVM can rupture, leading to the leakage of blood into the brain. This can trigger life-threatening complications such as stroke. However, the occurrence of this condition is rare, affecting approximately 1 in 100,000 individuals. The diagnosis is most frequently made among individuals aged 20 to 40 years.

Recognizing the Symptoms of Arteonenous Malformation

The symptoms of AVMs vary based on their location, often manifesting after rupture. Classic indicators associated with AVMs encompass:

  • Gradual decline in neurological function
  • Sudden, intense headaches
  • Unexpected seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

 Additional symptoms to be vigilant about include:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Limb numbness or tingling
  • Coordination loss
  • Unexplained back pain
  • Impairments in vision, speech, and sensation
  • Gradual memory loss
  • Confusion

What causes Arteonenous Malformation

AVMs are present from birth and arise due to unusual connections between blood vessels in the brain. The precise cause of this phenomenon remains unknown. In rare instances, they may have a hereditary basis, being passed down through generations.

Diagnosis of Arteonenous Malformation

  • Diagnostic modalities employed to identify an AVM encompass:
  • Computerized tomography or CT scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI
  • Cerebral angiography
  • CT angiography 
  • Magnetic resonance angiography or MRA
