AVM Complications




There are some complications when AVM occurs: stroke, numbness, problems with speech or movement, developmental delays in children, accumulation of spinal fluid in brain, lower quality of life and small risk for death from hemorrhage.
Dr. Italo Linfante, Medical Director of Interventional Neuroradiology & Endovascular Neurosurgery with Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, says seizures can be the first manifestation of AVM. Also he says depending on where the AVM is located in the brain, it affects a particular area of the brain.
The specialist affirms it’s better to get AVM before it burst for avoiding critical complications.
