Arteriovenous malformations

Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are characterized by an abnormal leash of vessels allowing for arteriovenous shunting. They can occur anywhere in the body but have a predilection towards the head and neck.  There is a direct arteriovenous communication with no intervening capillary bed. They can be congenital or acquired.
