Sclerotherapy of Vascular Malformations

  • 636 Accesses

Abstract

Advances in interventional techniques have revolutionized the treatment of congenital vascular malformations of all types. Traditional open surgical extirpation of these lesions carries the very real risks of excessive blood loss, incomplete excision of the lesions—often resulting in recurrent pathology—wound-healing complications, and frequently suboptimal aesthetic outcomes. While surgery is still indicated in some cases, interventional treatments have far and away become the first-line approach in a nearly universal paradigm shift toward less invasive techniques that also typically result in diminished associated morbidity.
