The Influence of the Type and Localization of the Angioma on the Clinical Syndrome

  • W. Walter


The attempt to show any relationship between the clinical picture, the size and type of angioma as well as its location, and the indication for operation is limited right from the outset by the fact that the newer operative procedures have not been considered in the evaluation of what were previously inoperable angiomas. In other words, the operability of angiomas by means of stereotaxy, cryosurgery and embolisation is not discussed here because the patients in our series have not been treated by these methods. We will begin from the baseline of previously used indication for a direct surgical approach where the optimal therapeutic goal is the complete removal of the angioma. In addition the ligation of supplying vessels following the exposure of the angioma will also be considered.
