May be prescribed to treat symptoms including headache, back pain and seizures caused by AVMs.
Our neurosurgeons use high magnification microscopes and high-resolution imaging to remove AVMs and repair fistulas while minimizing damage to surrounding areas and neurological structures within the brain and spine.
Cerebral Artery Bypass
Reroutes blood flow around blocked, narrowed or damaged arteries in the brain. Often essential in emergencies, a cerebral bypass may be required to restore healthy blood flow.
A catheter is inserted and equipped with coils to block the blood flow within the AVM, or plug the dural spinal fistula. This procedure may be done in combination with radiosurgery.
Computer imaging guides delivery of a single, high dose of radiation directly to the AVM. This procedure is typically used for AVMs that cannot be reached by surgery.
