Arterial Malformation

A vascular malformation composed of purely arterial vessels is exceedingly rare. Most of these pulsatile malformations are actually arteriovenous malformations.

Arterial lesions can grow to where they pose functional risks or may be life-threatening. As a result, they should be evaluated and monitored by physicians who specialize in treating these conditions. Our multidisciplinary team has expertise in both assessing and treating these lesions, with treatments including sclerotherapy and embolization.
