Detection of a malformation in your brain can be a serious issue and one that can cause agony and stress for you and your loved ones. You’ll instantly wonder about the effects of such conditions and, more importantly, if a viable treatment exists to regain the health you once knew. Don’t let vascular conditions such as cavernous or arteriovenous malformations deprive you of a healthy lifestyle, and rest assured with knowing that CyberKnife® Radiosurgery can be the perfect treatment for you.
An untreated malformation in the brain’s arteries and veins can lead to very serious consequences. If an arteriovenous or cavernous malformation goes unnoticed, it can cause severe mental damage, paralysis and even death due to hemorrhages.
Arteriovenous Malformation Symptoms
An arteriovenous malformation occurs when an unusual connection between arteries and veins happens, bypassing the capillary system. The condition can be found in any part of the body, but it is most commonly known to affect the central nervous system. Symptoms include:
- Coordination difficulties
- Difficulties formulating and understanding speech
- Numbness, tingling or sudden pain
Cavernous Malformation Symptoms
Small blood vessels that are enlarged or have abnormal structural features are known as cavernous malformations. This condition thins the walls of the arteries and can cause them to leak into the brain. Symptoms generally include:
- Hearing and vision problems
How Does This Procedure Work?
CyberKnife® Radiosurgery is a non-invasive procedure that can be used to treat your cerebral malformations. The procedure consists of delivering radiation beams to the affected area without the need of incisions or other traditional surgical methods. Our neurosurgeons can use the accuracy offered by this treatment to make the exact movements needed to rid you of your condition. The procedure’s non-invasive nature will do away with the lengthy recovery time and scarring that is usually attributed to traditional open surgery.
Is This The Right Treatment For You?
A series of physical tests and scans will determine the severity and location of your condition. If you are found eligible for CyberKnife® Radiosurgery, we will explain the procedure with you and your loved ones. This includes giving you information about the process, the possible outcomes of the surgery and the risks that can occur during and after the procedure.
