Cavernomas, also known as “cavernous malformations” or “cavernous angiomas,” are tangled bundles of small, thin-walled blood vessels that can leak or hemorrhage. They can irritate your brain, causing headaches, seizures, weakness, and stroke-like symptoms. As a Center of Excellence as designated by the Alliance to Cure Cavernous Malformation -- the only one in North Carolina -- we are known for providing high-quality, integrated care. Whether you have one or many cavernomas, or if you have been told yours are difficult to access, Duke’s specialized team of experts use advanced technology to learn more about your condition and determine the best treatment.
