Vascular Diseases


Vascular malformations are classified into four categories: (1) arteriovenous malformation (AVM); (2) cavernous hemangioma; (3) venous angioma and varix; and (4) capillary telangiectasis or telangiectasia. Symptoms of a vascular malformation may be secondary to rupture of the lesion, the vascular steal phenomenon (diversion of blood flow by the arteriovenous shunt from normal surrounding areas, which subsequently become ischemic), or to a mass effect.
