From 14th-16th October 2018 the 4th edition of the AVM World Congress was held.
After Edinburgh, Nancy, and San Francisco, Montreal welcomed this major event.
The aim of this congress is to involve the actors responsible for the daily treatment of AVM and to share opinions, data and innovations in this area.
More than 400 people from 47 different countries participated in this event.

The meeting will gather renowned experts from all over the world, from all pertinent backgrounds and specialties, as well as the new generation with revolutionary ideas to address current and future challenges in the management of CNS vascular malformations.

The International Organizing Committee is working on the program to make the event memorable, with ample room for vascular anatomy and fundamental research, case reports and complications, opinions and clinical trials.

We are working hard: There must be more clinical science in this field!
Specific sessions will be dedicated to basic and applied sciences, posterior fossa and spinal cord AVMs, imaging and neuro-navigation, the design of clinical trials, new approaches ‘from the back door’, complications (if they ever occur!), as well as the too often neglected peri-AVM environment: the brain, family and surrounding society!

Neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, radiation oncologists, students, researchers, engineers, technicians, nurses, and patients are invited to contribute.

We hope to welcome you to Montreal
