Conference paper


The intralesional application of fibrin sealant is a new therapeutic possibility in the treatment of maxillofacial hemangiomas. Depending on the size of the hemangioma, fibrin sealing is combined with surgical measures. Because of the simple technique and the lack of risks (provided that it is handled correctly), fibrin sealing can be applied in hemangiomas situated in any part of the face, mouth, and neck. The blood-saving tissue preparation makes it possible to reliably isolate the hemangioma under preservation of important anatomical structures and guarantees very satisfying functional and cosmetic results.
