Treatment Options

There are many treatment options available for patients with arteriovenous malformations, with the main choices being surgery, radiation, and embolization.

Formula often used to calculate a person’s lifetime risk of rupture when considering treatment is:

Lifetime Risk (in %) = 105 – Patient’s Age (Mayfield Clinic)

There are, however, many factors to consider that could affect the chance, such as the location and type of AVM.
