Definition from article below.

Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM), a congenital disorder that interrupts blood flow in the brain due to abmormal connections between arteries and veins. AVM silently waiting. Brain AVM often shows no symptoms until the tangle of the dilated blood vessels rupture to cause a hemorrhage. According to a doctor, "(it)... was like a walking time bomb.
