Show Summary Details

Preview

Vascular malformations of the trunk and viscera present uncommon symptoms and challenges that can be life-threatening, including respiratory compromise, pulmonary hemorrhage, intestinal obstruction, gastrointestinal bleeding and extreme disfigurement. They demand individualize therapeutic approaches but with innovative techniques, symptoms and risks from lesions feared can often be ameliorated. Malformations involving the genitalia may cause hemorrhage, pain, dysfunction and psychosocial impairment. Surgical and interventional procedures can be very effective in restoring contour and function while preventing bleeding.
