Aneurysm Treatments

Aneurysm treatments help prevent hemorrhaging and are only effective if performed before a stroke has occurred.

Vascular Malformation Treatments

Surgical arteriovenous malformation (AVM) removal

  • If the AVM is located in a more accessible area of the brain, it can be removed through stereotactic microsurgery.
  • This procedure uses microscopic cameras and delicate instruments to remove an AVM rupture.

Stereotactic radiosurgery

  • This procedure uses a focused beam of radiation to eliminate the AVM, which eventually clots and dissolves.

Endovascular treatment or embolization

  • In this procedure, a small coil is injected into the vessel with the AVM through a microcatheter.
  • The coil prevents blood from entering, and so prevents the AVM from rupturing.
  • Embolization also may be used to assist in the overall treatment of the malformation by other means such as surgery or radiosurgery.
