Aneurysm or AVM are catastrophic / vascular abnormalities that can result in sudden death in patients. An aneurysm can be best described as a balloon like dilation of a blood vessel & when involving the delicate vessels of the brain, they can rupture leading to fatal complications. An early diagnosis followed by timely repair by either clipping or coiling has constantly shown good results & is now the accepted modality of treatment worldwide.

A brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain. A brain arteriovenous malformation may not cause any signs or symptoms until the AVM ruptures, resulting in bleeding in the brain (haemorrhage).

In people without haemorrhage, signs and symptoms of a brain AVM may include: Seizures, Headache or paralysis. If surgically amicable to treatment, then the results of these patients are encouraging with improved long term overall survival benefits than most other forms of therapy.
