Management News for Patients with AVMs


Reinhard Wurm, MD, PhD from Klinikum Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, reveals management news for patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). He begins by discussing the risk of AVM bleeding at the time of diagnosis with examples from completed studies, including A Randomized trial of Unruptured Brain Arteriovenous malformations (ARUBA).

He presents observations about the ways in which AVMs are treated with radiotherapy and uses cases to exemplify these points.
