The precious and delicate organ of the human brain requires a steady supply of blood, carrying oxygen and nutrients and washing away waste products. It is also exquisitely sensitive to changes in pressure. Several kinds of defects in the blood supply system can cause severe problems when present in the brain. These include arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), cavernous malformations, vein of Galen malformations and aneurysms. Moyamoya disease also affects the blood supply system of the brain.

Surgical intervention can often correct these problems if they are discovered before major damage has been done. Neurosurgeons at Boston Children's Hospital not only have access to the latest equipment and techniques, they frequently pioneer new surgical approaches and equipment in their constant search for the best, most reliable ways of treating their young patients. In addition, they benefit from the dedicated support of a highly-skilled team of nurses, imaging specialists, technicians and therapists.
