    Can you recommend a good review article on the significance of the Vein of Galen as well as a review of Vein of Galen malformations? I am medical student and I am having a hard time knowing where to start my research about Vein of Galen malformations. Thank you. This website is very good.

    I first have to say thank you for this site as my daughter is five months away from marking a seven year anniversary from her first procedure. This site has been a life saver and we visit frequently. On another note my daughter has been unofficially diagnosed with Oster-Webber-Rendu/HHT. Her father has this genetic disorder and she has three of the characteristics and we hope in the near future to undergo genetic testing. Has anyone else heard of others diagnosed with Vein of Galen also diagnosed with HHT?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for putting this site together. I’m located in Georgia and my son was born on September 1 after the Vein of Galen Malformation was found during a 36 week ultrasound. He’s now 2 weeks old and had his first surgury at Emory to glue off 4 of the connecting veins about a week ago. His stats change on a daily basis, so it’s good to be able to read about positive family stories of survival. I’m really praying that I will be able to tell a simular story of my little boy.

    Glad to see this website still on. I have to admit that it has been a long time since I have visited it. When I first found it, it was a big help to my husband and I. Our daughters story is on this website. Our daughter Jennifer would have been 18 this coming June. We pray for each and every family that has to deal with the vein of galen. Loretta Dillow
