Brain AVM Awareness Month is dedicated to increasing knowledge and understanding of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in the brain, a rare but critical condition. A brain AVM is an abnormal tangle of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins, which disrupts normal blood flow and oxygen circulation. When left undiagnosed or untreated, AVMs can rupture, leading to hemorrhagic strokes, brain damage, and even death. By dedicating a month to this condition, the focus is placed on the importance of early detection, research, treatment options, and support for affected individuals and their families. Through heightened awareness, the hope is to reduce the number of undetected cases, provide resources for those diagnosed, and improve the overall understanding of this medical anomaly in both the medical community and the general public.
