What research is being done on AVMs?

Investigators hope to learn more about AVMs by studying the normal development of arteries, capillaries, and veins during the embryonic period. By understanding the formation and growth of these vascular channels, we hope that defective messages can be interpreted.

AVM tissues removed after treatment are also being studied in Boston Children's Vascular Biology Program.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
