Understanding Cerebrovascular Malformations
Cerebrovascular malformations refer to a group of abnormalities in the blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord. These malformations can occur due to developmental defects or abnormalities during fetal development. Cerebrovascular malformations are classified into different types, including arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), cavernous malformations, and venous malformations.
Symptoms and Diagnosis
The symptoms of cerebrovascular malformations can vary depending on the type and location of the malformation. Some common symptoms may include:
- Weakness or numbness in limbs
- Difficulty speaking or understanding speech
- Bleeding within the brain
- Visual disturbances
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention for proper diagnosis and treatment. At CHI St. Luke’s Health - Performance Medicine, our expert vascular surgeons utilize advanced diagnostic techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scans, and angiography to accurately diagnose cerebrovascular malformations.
Our team of highly skilled vascular surgeons specializes in the treatment of cerebrovascular malformations. The treatment options may vary depending on the type and severity of the malformation. Some common treatment approaches include:
Surgical intervention may be recommended for some cerebrovascular malformations, especially arteriovenous malformations. Our experienced vascular surgeons utilize advanced surgical techniques, including microsurgery and endovascular procedures, to remove or repair the malformation and restore normal blood flow.
Endovascular embolization is a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is threaded through the blood vessels to the site of the malformation. Embolic materials are then injected to block the abnormal blood vessels, reducing the risk of bleeding or improving the conditions for subsequent surgery.
Radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment option that uses focused radiation beams to target and destroy the abnormal blood vessels. This approach is particularly effective for smaller malformations or those located in sensitive areas where surgical intervention may carry higher risks.
