Pediatic Vascular Malformations and Aneurysms

Brain aneurysms are rare in children and are different from adult aneurysms in size, shape and location. All aneurysms in children are managed in conjunction with subspecialists in vascular neurosurgery.

Vascular malformations include arteriovenous malformations, cavernous malformations and arteriovenous fistulas, all of which can occur in the brain and spinal cord. Vascular malformations can be treated through a variety of approaches including microsurgery, stereotactic radiosurgery (link to AVM area on adult site) and endovascular techniques. Often, a combination of approaches are used.
