Not a problem at all. Knowing first hand how frustrating finding someone who can treat an a.v.m. is, well, the more information one has, the better off for anyone suffering with one is.
Surprisingly there was not a Radiologist at Bostons Beth Isreal who felt that mine could be embolized, or should I say "not be able to reach the affected area with a catheter" (my words).
Dr. Rosen was the first person that mentioned a direct injection of glue. I had never heard of that one before. I am hoping (selfish of me) that he never relocates farther away geographically from where I reside. Quite a trip there-10 hours on Amtrak one way. I realize some people travel from different continents to see him and that I don't have it that bad lol.
In a nutshell, he is top shelf in our book!
.....and thanks for your help with the forum earlier!
