Arteriovenous and Cavernous Malformations, Volume 143, is the latest addition in the ongoing HCN series, an evidence-based compendium which addresses both the scientific and clinical aspects of this unique disease process. The volume covers didactic aspects, such as the epidemiology, etiology, and diagnosis of AVMs, while also providing expert clinical information on the management and treatment of these lesions. In addition, it provides coverage of modern-day advances in the genetics of cavernous malformations, as well as discussion regarding future open research questions. Readers from the laboratory bench to the bedside can expect a broad, yet objective, review of this pathology, with updates from the latest scientific literature and data supporting current practices.
