Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs) Treatment in children

How are AVMs treated?

Treatment often depends on where your child's AVM is located.

Intracranial AVMs

  • Radiation
  • Embolization (injection of material into the center of the anomaly via a catheter)
  • Surgery

AVMs in other parts of the body

  • Embolization
  • Sclerotherapy (direct injection of an irritating solution)
  • Surgery

Wherever possible, surgery provides the best treatment.
