: : diagnosed with spinal avm(arteriovenous malformation) at t-12. Had embolization to close it off. What causes the paralysis with avm's, and other disorders such as transverse myletis?
: i also have a spinal avm, higher up though. paralysis is caused by the interuption of normal signals that are relayed between brain and specific body part/funtion & reverse. the signals can be either motor or sensory. the interuption can be caused by severing the spinal cord, a tear in it, bruising it....or in our case abnormal blood vessels that bleed and caused a blood clot.
: what type of sp. avm do you have? will your paralysis be forever or are you considered an incomplete parapalegic?
: i was paralyzed from the shoulders down about a year ago but now am able to walk.
: My avm was considered small. That's all I really know. Right now I'm considered incomplete. Muscle movement is functioning to just below the knees in both legs. I would love to hear about your miraculous recovery. It would give me much optimism and hope. My e-mail ic email@example.com
