May 12, 2017 · #MayoClinicNeuroChat on Stroke and AVM in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

I have an AVM in my left maxillary/facial area that extends into my mouth, down my throat and covers about 70% of my tongue and have had 10 etoh ablations and a few laser treatments with Dr. Chong and Dr. Hinnie at Mayo. My first question is what is the likelihood of this involving other areas? My second question involves a patient of mine ( I am a nurse practitioner) that has a spinal AVM which is causing him lower extremity weakness, where his legs will “give out” while he is standing it walking. He had an embolization last year but symptoms have returned. No AVM seen on MRI… just wondering where to go with him next?
Thank you in advance,
