[25] mentioned that over 10% of vascular pseudolesions, such as arteriovenous shunts, show hypointensity in the hepatocyte phase and can be misinterpreted as HCC even with the combined interpretation of hepatobiliary and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI.

In such children, it may be acceptable to perform partial embolisation to reduce the arteriovenous shunt and facilitate normal systemic and neurological development, even with the presence of a residual shunt.
Local angiogenesis may be stimulated by local factors (eg, local venous thrombosis, postthrombotic arteriovenous shunts, and tumor production of angiogenic factors) and augmented by systemic factors (eg, oral contraceptives, female gender, and systemic elevation of tumor-associated growth factors).
It is postulated that stenosis is the response of the venous endothelium to the rapid and turbulent flow caused by the arteriovenous shunt. (3) Stenosis of the outflow may beneficially reduce cardiac venous return, preventing congestive cardiac failure.
