Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are complex congenital vascular anomalies resulting from faulty embryonic development of arterial and venous structures. The present discussion will specifically address AVMs of the extremities. Complications of these lesions can include tissue damage, functional impairment and amputation. The article reviews current diagnostic procedures and treatment options. A case study is presented with a discussion of nursing care focusing on pain, anxiety, and alteration in peripheral tissue perfusion.
