Duke Cerebrovascular Center expertly diagnoses and treats arteriovenous malformations (AVM) of the head and neck.
Head and neck AVMs are abnormal collections of blood vessels located anywhere in the head, face, or neck.
AVMs of the head and neck have a wide range of appearances based on the blood-flow characteristics. Some can be very tiny, only affecting vessels, while others cause large swelling of the arteries and veins.
Diagnosis and treatment of AVMs of the head and neck depend on the type of malformation, its degree of blood flow, and the location.
Duke possesses state-of-the-art clinical expertise, laboratory evaluations, and imaging to completely diagnose and treat the vascular malformation.
Our team of specialists meet each month to discuss the diagnostic modalities and treatment options tailored specifically to each patient.
