How serious is Brain Arteriovenous Malformation?

My cousin was just hospitalized because she was having bad migraines, and when her mother took her to the hospital she passed out and they found out that Brain Arteriovenous Malformation was the cause. They kept her in a coma because the doctors are afraid that her blood pressure will rise if she wakes up, with tubes and stuff in her. She's only 17 years old. What is her chance of survival? She is not my 1st cousin, she is the daughter of my mom's cousin, so we don't know too many details right now. How can this be treated?

Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) can be quite serious. Only the attending doctor can say what the chances of survival are. But the reason why they are keeping her sedated, ie calm, is to help prevent any ruptures from occuring due to stress. They will try to limit bleeding, control any seizures, and, if possible, remove the AVM. They might have to perform surgery, which can vary from embolization to full open brain surgery. Radiation therapy might be an option.  (+ info)
