Cavernous Malformations

Cavernous Malformations

Cavernous malformations, also known as cavernous angiomas, cavernomas, and sometimes called “cav-mals,” is a condition affecting blood vessels.

Cavernous malformations are benign lesions that are found within the brain substance. They are composed of a small sinusoid of low pressure venous vessels.  They can present with hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain), seizures, or other neurological symptoms.  

Anyone suspected or diagnosed with having a cavernous malformation should be evaluated by an experienced cerebrovascular neurosurgeon.  Experts in cerebrovascular neurosurgery are equipped with the knowledge to help patients understand the specific risks of his/her cav-mal and discuss any necessary treatment options.
