ABSTRACT. Background: Arteriovenous malformation is a high flux and low resistance vascular system defect that consists of a blending of arteries and veins without interposition of a capillary system, in response of an increasing anomalous angiogenesis. Uterine arteriovenous malformation is a rare entity, with only 300 cases reported, being even more uncommon as a cause of postpartum bleeding, with only thirteen cases in the literature. We report the fourteenth case of uterine arteriovenous malformation associated with postpartum bleeding ...
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) are thin-walled abnormal vessels which provide direct capillary-free communications between the pulmonary and systemic circulations. Patients with PAVMs have usually have low blood oxygen levels and are at risk of other complications including strokes, brain abscesses, pregnancy-related complications and haemorrhage. We hypothesise that the complications of PAVM patients arise from their PAVMs and not the more recognised intracardiac forms of shunting. We propose to perform echocardiograms to enable assessment of the presence of other causes of capillary-free communications between the pulmonary and systemic circulations ...
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is an uncommon abnormality that can be single or multiple, unilateral or bilateral, and is sometimes part of the multisystem disorder hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia. Two aspects of PAVMs are of paramount significance: firstly, right-to-left shunting through the malformation may allow bland or septic paradoxical embolisation into the cerebral vasculature; secondly, effective treatment is possible, by transcatheter techniques or surgery.. A 19 year old man presented with breathlessness and fatigue on exertion, and recurrent haemoptysis. He had pronounced central cyanosis (upper panel, middle column) and digital clubbing. The blood haemoglobin concentration was 25.1 g/dl and arterial oxygen saturation was 76%. His chest x ray showed a large irregular shadow adjacent to the right pulmonary hilum (lower panel, middle column). Echocardiography after injecting agitated saline in an arm vein showed the appearance of contrast in the left heart, even ...
After a mean follow-up period of 66 months (range 17-170), the treated AVM was completely obliterated in eight cases (26%) and, except for one patient, the lesion was significantly decreased in size in all other patients who had more than three years of follow-up. Pre-radiosurgery neurologic symptoms improved in more than 50% of cases, but worsened in three (10%). Among the latter group, symptoms were relatively minor except for one instance (3%) of radiation-induced myelopathy that occurred within one year of radiosurgery. By far the most notable clinical outcome of all is that after more than 170 years of collective post SRS follow-up, no patient suffered a new haemorrhage.. ...
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM) are abnormal communications between pulmonary arteries and pulmonary veins, and most commonly congenital in nature. Although rare, it is an important consideration in cyanotic patients of unknown cause. We report 3 cases with diffuse PAVM in children with different clinical manifestations and initial diagnosis was made by transthoracic contrast echocardiogram. Transthoracic contrast echocardiography (TTCE) is valuable as initial diagnostic tools for diffuse PAVM. Pulmonary angiography should be reserved for therapeutic purposes for PAVM rather than diagnostic.
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) large enough to lead to clinically significant cyanosis are rare in the pediatric population. To date, there has been some experience with transcatheter embolization of pulmonary AVMs in children, primaril
A 71-year-old woman presented with a 1-week history of dyspnoea, right pleuritic chest pain and bilateral ankle oedema. There was no history of cough, fever or haemoptysis. Her body mass index was ,30. Her jugular venous pressure was raised with reduced air entry over the right lung base. She was anaemic (haemoglobin 6.8 g/dl, mean corpuscular volume 67) with type II respiratory failure (pH 7.40, oxygen tension 9.30 kPa, carbon dioxide tension 9.32 kPa on 0.5 fraction of inspired oxygen). Chest radiography revealed a moderate right pleural effusion. A chest drain was inserted in the emergency room and 2 litres of bloody effusion was drained. A subsequent contrast-enhanced CT scan of the chest revealed a probable pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) in the right lower lobe and a compressing organised haemothorax with significant mediastinal shift (fig 1A). Pulmonary angiography confirmed a massive PAVM with multiple large feeding arteries and other smaller PAVMs in the right lower lobe ...

Diffuse pulmonary vascular malformations (PAVMs) are a small and understudied, but nevertheless important subset of the PAVM population of patients, associated with significant mortality and morbidity. A review of literature was undertaken to investigate the current understanding of diffuse PAVMs. This review demonstrated that no additional attempts to define diffuse PAVMs and describe their natural history was made before or after the in 2000 report by Faughnan et al {{51 Faughnan,M.E. 2000; }}. To further expand the findings from 2000, we performed a retrospective review of 36 patients (21 female, 15 male) with diffuse PAVMs from a cohort of 821 consecutive patients with PAVMs. Diffuse PAVMs were classified angiographically as involving one or more segmental pulmonary arteries in one or both lungs. The following data were noted from the chart review: Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) status, gender, age at presentation, presence or absence of large focal PAVMs, oxygen saturations, ...

Results Of 488 new patients with PAVMs, 33 (6.8%) had cerebral abscesses. 21 were female (63.6%), 12 male. The rate corrected for ascertainment bias was 3.8%. The median age at abscess was 46 years (range 13-69). The median oxygen saturation (SaO2) was 90.75% (range 70-97.5%), with 9 individuals having respiratory symptoms. There were 29 confirmed HHT diagnoses (87.9%). The median largest feeding artery diameter was 5mm, and for 5 individuals, all feeding arteries had diameter ≤3 mm. In total, 19 (57.6%) had residual PAVMs too small for embolization.. Organisms identified (Table 1) suggest periodontal origin; 16 individuals (48.5%) had poor dental hygiene and 9 (27.3%) had dental events as abscess precipitants. Interestingly, 4 individuals had abscesses whilst on holiday abroad. 5 individuals reported worsening migraines and 2 individuals had increased seizure frequency ≤ 3 months pre-abscess.. Within the non-overlapping 1999-2005 cohort, there were 28/219 abscesses (12.8%, 9.05% adjusting ...
Arteriovenous malformations are congenital, resulting from abnormal connections between arteries and veins. Patients with AVM are missing the normal network of tiny vessels (capillaries) that connect arteries and veins. The resulting tangle of abnormal vessels allows multiple direct commutations between arteries that take oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain and veins that carry the oxygen-depleted blood back to the lungs and heart.. Although always present at birth, AVM may not develop into noticeable lesions for several years or even into adulthood. The symptoms and signs of AVM will depend on the location of the malformation, but patients should be aware that:. ...

A 25-year-old Para 1321 female from North India presented to emergency room with sudden bout of heavy postcoital bleed associated with suprapubic cramping since the last 4 h. In her obstetric history, she had four-term vaginal deliveries and two complete abortions. There was no similar history of either postcoital bleeding or excessive bleeding following childbirth or abortion in the past. Her menstrual history was unremarkable. There was no family history of such bleeding or any bleeding disorders. She was hemodynamically stable at admission. On pelvic examination, uterus was normal in size, shape, and was non tender. After history and examination, test for urine and serum human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) was carried out which were negative. Transabdominal ultrasonography (USG) showed bulky uterus with cystic areas within it [Figure 1]. Color Doppler imaging demonstrated multiple tortuous vascular channels and spaces in intramyometrial and in bilateral parametrial region with flow in both ...

HealthTap: Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Bream on How will arteriovenous malformations affect my health going forward: Arterio-venous malformations at the basic level is an abnormal connection to an artery and vein. They can occur anywhere in the body and can be something you are born with (congenital) or acquired, usually through penetrating trauma. They can cause problems with bleeding or shunting of blood or allowing bacteria or clots to pass through them. The symptoms relate to where they are located.
Characterizing the vascularity of certain pediatric head and neck lesions may be difficult on the basis of clinical examination alone. It is, however, important to differentiate such abnormalities, because the differentiation will often influence the further management of these lesions (14, 15). High flow arteriovenous malformations are often treated by a combination of intra-arterial embolization and surgery (16). Percutaneous sclerotherapy is the preferred method of treatment for venous malformations (17). Hemangiomas usually do not warrant intervention, because many will spontaneously involute.. Most head and neck tumors and vascular malformations show increased enhancement on standard MR images after administration of contrast material. Although certain appearances of high and low flow lesions, such as visible flow voids (18), have been depicted on standard MR images, these are static images that do not allow assessment of the hemodynamics of the lesion. Furthermore, flow voids may be absent ...

A mandibular arteriovenous malformation (AVM) presented with massive molar socket bleeding and was emergently treated by tooth extraction and partial resection of the surrounding alveolar bone. To achieve hemostasis, the resultant cavity was filled with hydroxyapatite bone cement. Not only was hemostasis and alveolar reconstruction achieved, but follow-up angiography demonstrated venous outlet occlusion and retrograde AVM thrombosis requiring no further treatment. ...
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are congenital lesions composed of a complex tangle of arteries and veins connected by one or more fistulae (see the image below). They most commonly occur in young adults, with morbidity and death occurring in 30-50% and 10-15% of patients, respectively.
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) occur within the central nervous system as congenital anomalies that allow blood to be shunted directly from arteries to veins without an interposed capillary network.

Most people dont realize Im sick. Its not something you could guess by looking at me.. When I was diagnosed with PH in 2008, I really didnt think it was that big of a deal or understand how it would change my life. Serious illness has always been something Ive dealt with. I have a PTEN gene mutation that makes me more at risk for certain types of cancer (Im a three-time cancer survivor) and I also have pelvic arteriovenous malformations that must be embolized from time to time to reduce the pain. I was in the hospital after one of these procedures when I sensed that something else just wasnt right. My medical care team ran a lot of tests, and I was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure within a few days.. Looking back, I wasnt even thinking of the possibility of starting over again with such a serious, life-changing diagnosis at age 48. I worked at a womens shelter, and I was actually looking forward to getting out of the hospital so I could make it to work on my ...
Although our alk1 mutant zebrafish model strongly suggests that AVMs represent abnormal retention of transient arteriovenous connections in response to high blood flow, alternative mechanisms have been proposed. In Eng- and Alk1-null mice, the loss of the arterial marker Ephrinb2 and thus the loss of arterial identity has been suggested to be the cause of AVMs (Urness et al., 2000; Sorensen et al., 2003). However, more recent data fail to demonstrate deficiencies in arteriovenous identity in an inducible Eng-null mouse (Mahmoud et al., 2010). We see no gain of venous identity, as assessed by vegfr3 expression, in alk1 mutant cranial arteries, but have been unable to investigate arterial identity because we have yet to identify an arterial marker, apart from alk1, that is clearly expressed in the cranial arteries affected by loss of alk1 (B.L.R., unpublished).. Blood flow clearly plays a role not only in phenotype development in alk1 mutants, but also in alk1 expression, as alk1 is not expressed ...

Until recently, there has been controversy regarding the classification of OVMs, which reflects a poor understanding of the origin of these lesions and may complicate treatment decisions. In 1999 the Orbital Society published a consensus statement on the terminology of OVMs [2]. Vascular malformations were classified as no flow malformations (e.g. lymphangiomas), arterial flow malformations (e.g. arteriovenous malformations) or venous flow malformations according to communications with the systemic vascular system. Venous flow malformations are weakened segments of the orbital venous system of variable complexity. This group is further classified as distensible (clinical or radiological evidence of distensibility with increased venous pressure), or nondistensible. Distensible lesions have direct and rich communication with the venous circulation and nondistensible lesions have a direct communication but to a much lesser extent ...
