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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
