What is uterine arteriovenous malformation?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 02/15/2018

Uterine Arteriovenous Malformation (UAVM) is considered a rare condition that can cause a life-threatening heavy bleeding in young women. It results from the formation of several arteriovenous fistulous communications within the uterus, with a mixture of small capillary-like vessels.

UAVM is associated with multiple births, miscarriage, or previous surgery (D&C, C-section, abortion). It can be treated with a technique called transcatheter arterial embolisation.
