About the Cerebellum & Brainstem category

I’ve created this space with a view to us collating information about AVMs in the cerebellum, brainstem, pons and any other deeper-brain AVMs, as often these are referred to by doctors as untreatable but where I feel I’ve seen information that some of our members have had successful interventions.

Trying to find these stories under General, where most brain AVM stories are to be found, is a pretty thankless task.

At 27 Feb 2018, this category is brand new and I’ve migrated what appear to be relevant stories into the category.


Thanks Dick. My AVM is a cerebellar one and is ‘large’. I was therefore told it is untreatable, or at least not without severe risk of deficit.
