Intrahepatic arteriovenous shunts, also referred to as intrahepatic arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) or hepatic arteriosystemic venous shunts, represent a spectrum of abnormal communications between the hepatic arterial system and the hepatic veins.
Arteriovenous shunts are seen in:
- hypervascular liver tumors 3
- hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) - Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome 1
