Management of vascular and lymphovenous malformations

Management of vascular and lymphovenous malformations Perhaps the most important event in relation to the vascular and lymphovenous group of malformations has been the development of a classification which is useful to physicians, patients, and parents. The broad classification consists of hemangiomas and vascular malformations; the latter group is further subdivided into venous, arteriovenous, and lymphovenous malformations [5, 11]. Hemangiomas are present at or just after birth in 40% of infants. They grow rapidly and involute slowly; there is increased endothelial cell activity. Venous malformations are present at birth in 70% of cases; they grow with the child and have a normal rate of endothelial cell turnover. Lymphovenous malformations occur at an early age and may or may not resolve. Arteriovenous malformations are usually progressive. The treatment is a combination of embolization and surgery. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Gefässchirurgie Springer Journals

Abstract

Perhaps the most important event in relation to the vascular and lymphovenous group of malformations has been the development of a classification which is useful to physicians, patients, and parents. The broad classification consists of hemangiomas and vascular malformations; the latter group is further subdivided into venous, arteriovenous, and lymphovenous malformations [5, 11]. Hemangiomas are present at or just after birth in 40% of infants. They grow rapidly and involute slowly; there is increased endothelial cell activity. Venous malformations are present at birth in 70% of cases; they grow with the child and have a normal rate of endothelial cell turnover. Lymphovenous malformations occur at an early age and may or may not resolve. Arteriovenous malformations are usually progressive. The treatment is a combination of embolization and surgery.
