1 doctor agrees

In brief: AVM

Renal arteriovenous malformations (avms) are uncommon.
The estimated rate in large autopsy series is less than 1 case per 30, 000 patients. In clinical studies, which usually include patients undergoing evaluation with urologic or vascular imaging techniques, the incidence ranges from 1 case per 1000-2500 patients.
