A patient from Ghana, Africa, who came to India to be treated for a complex brain disorder underwent a rare kind of neuro surgery. The patient, who was suffering from Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) - a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain - which led to hemorrhage.

The 33-year-old foreign national patient was admitted with complaint of persistent headache and diagnosed with multiple weak and bleeding blood vessels under his skull. During the operation, the doctors clipped the aneurysms and excised AVM to prevent further bleeding. The condition was so complex that any bleeding during his travel to India or on the operation table, could have led to a stroke or death. An AVM disrupts this process of blood supply to the body carried out by arteries and veins. It is most often seen in brain or spine.

The cause for it remains unknown but it's usually formed later in life. When there is a rupture in AVM it leads to hemorrhage. This usually causes no symptoms and often goes unnoticed. Depending on the severity of the hemorrhage, brain damage or death may result.
