Spetzler-Martin AVM Grading Scale

This page was last updated on April 8th, 2024

This grading scale incorporates anatomical features of the AVM to formulate a score between 1 and 5 (40). The higher the score, the higher the risk of operative morbidity and mortality. These predictive data can then be discussed with the family to determine whether operative intervention is desirable.
