Cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and fistula can be addressed with multi-modal treatments with including surgical, endovascular, and radiosurgery approaches performed by the members of the Cerebrovascular Center. With external grant funding, we are building computational fluid dynamic models of AVM to better understand the rupture risk of AVMs.
