In brief: More information

Arterio-venous malformations at the basic level is an abnormal connection to an artery and vein.
They can occur anywhere in the body and can be something you are born with (congenital) or acquired, usually through penetrating trauma. They can cause problems with bleeding or shunting of blood or allowing bacteria or clots to pass through them. The symptoms relate to where they are located.
