Author(s): Dr. Manjula Raghuveer and Dr. Sudeeptha Raghuveer
Abstract: Uterine AV malformation is a rare condition with very few cases reported in literature. It is mainly due to abnormal and non functional connections between arteries and veins and can be life threatening if untreated. It commonly affects women in child bearing age group. Women present with irregular and excessive vaginal bleeding. The treatment modality is considered depending on the age of the woman, symptoms, inclination to maintain reproductive functions and localization and size of the lesion. MRI angiography is considered the gold standard for diagnosis of the condition and Uterine artery embolisation may be offered if the woman has inclination to maintain reproductive functions as a method of management. Here is reporting a case of acquired AVM following D and C which was treated with laparoscopic hysterectomy.
