Cavernous Malformation

A cavernous malformation is an abnormal collection or tangle of thin-walled blood vessels within normal brain tissue. Cavernous malformations are also known as cavernous hemangiomas or cavernomas. The decision to treat a cavernous malformation depends on the location of the malformation and whether it causes symptoms. Microsurgical techniques as well as stereotactic radiosurgery may be employed.
