AIM: Localized intravascular coagulopathy is present in children with venous malformations (VMs) as evidenced by elevated D-dimer levels. Few studies have looked into the changes in D-dimer after sclerotherapy and its correlation with treatment outcome and complications. Our study aims to investigate changes in D-dimer in children with VMs undergoing alcohol sclerotherapy. METHODS: A prospective cohort study from 2014 to 2016, which included children (<18years) with VM undergoing alcohol sclerotherapy, was completed...

Venous malformations (VMs) of the head and neck arise from deficits in the development of venous network. Clinically, VMs are highly variable, from small and asymptomatic varicosities to massive cervicofacial lesions. Therapeutic approaches include surgery; laser photocoagulation; sclerotherapy; and, more recently, systemic targeted drugs. This article discusses the natural history, diagnosis, and management of VMs.

Vascular malformations are congenital anomalies of the vascular and/or lymphatic system that affect the head and neck region. The most common treatment options are sclerotherapy, laser therapy, surgery, and embolization. Because vascular malformations are variable in type, size, extent, and location, it is a challenge to select methods for evaluation of treatment outcome. Without standardized outcome reporting, it is difficult to compare and combine scientific evidence to support therapeutic decision making...

Venous malformations are slow flow dysplastic lesions, constituted by a vascular nest without arterial or capillary connections, more or less independent of the normal venous anatomy and circulation. In certain cases a treatment is required for symptom relief or for natural complications management. The percutaneous sclerotherapy under ultrasound guidance is increasingly used as an effective and mini-invasive option, allowing obtaining very good results with minor side effects. Several substances have been used with different efficacy and side effects rate...

INTRODUCTION: A congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) type III may become large enough to cause hydrops fetalis. In such circumstances, the fetus can be treated with open fetal resection, maternal betamethasone administration, or percutaneous sclerotherapy. CASE REPORT: A 24 week gestation fetus with a CPAM type III was treated by percutaneous sclerotherapy using ethanolamine oleate (EO). The EO inadvertently entered the left atrium and ventricle with subsequent fetal bradycardia and demise...

BACKGROUND: Cysts of parathyroid origin are sometimes encountered and can easily be mistaken as thyroidal cysts. Functional parathyroid cysts, with symptoms and signs of hyperparathyroidism, are rare and may be a diagnostic challenge to clinicians. We report here on three cases of functional parathyroid cysts that illustrate diagnosis difficulties related to unusual clinical presentations in three Caucasian women, including negative parathyroid scintigraphy. CASE PRESENTATIONS: Patient 1, an 87-year-old Caucasian woman presented with confusion and dysphagia...

Management of venous malformation (VM) in the pharynx is challenging because of difficulties in needle access and the presence of nerves as well as other critical anatomical structures around the lesion. We describe the successful treatment of a large pharyngeal VM using transoral sclerotherapy. The patient, a 21-yearold male, visited our hospital for sclerotherapy treatment consultation after complaining of difficulty in swallowing because of a pharyngeal VM. Transoral sclerotherapy was successful, and the symptoms showed complete alleviation...

INTRODUCTION: The current state-of-the-art treatment modality for hypertrophic capillary malformations (CMs), laser therapy, has a considerable rate of non-responders and recurrence. Intralesional bleomycin injections (or 'sclerotherapy') are commonly used to treat venous and lymphatic malformations with an excellent effect, but these intravascular injections are not possible in CMs due to the small diameter of the vessels. Electroporation-an electric field applied to the tissue-could increase the permeability of endothelial cells, which could theoretically facilitate targeted localised bleomycin delivery...
