Vascular Malformations

Vascular malformations are abnormal collections of blood vessels that may cause bleeding, seizures, headache, or stroke.

At Mount Sinai we use a minimally invasive technique called embolization to close the abnormal blood vessels from the inside using “glues” or particles. Although this technique can close the entire abnormality in some patients, for others, the malformation may need to be surgically removed or treated with a special type of radiation (radiosurgery). In these cases, embolization prior to either of these approaches can shrink the malformation and reduce the risk of bleeding if surgical removal is required.
