Multidisciplinary Surgical Treatment of Vascular Malformations
The introduction of non surgical techniques for the treatment of congenital vascular malformations (CVMs) has dramatically diminished the frequency of operations. However, in some cases, surgery is still the best option. In some locations that are difficult to approach, surgical expertise in the anatomical area allows a safer and more radical operation to be performed. The main locations in which multidisciplinary surgery may be helpful include muscle, joints, hand, face and skin.
