Embolization Of Arteriovenous Malformation(AVM) In The Limbs


Embolization of arteriovenous malformation (AVM) involves the sealing of arteries and veins in the affected region. A small tube is guided into the treatment area in the affected limbs using X-rays. Injection of medicine after a neurological exam is done to determine if the AVM blood vessel is connected to major regions of the brain. Then a lasting material is injected in the AVM region. Local anaesthesia is given in this process.
