Vascular malformations are congenital anomalies that can affect each part of the vasculature. Combined forms are common and they are often part of complex syndromes. Most malformations are diagnosed during infancy, but some get obvious only later in life. The field of vascular malformations is emerging with recently described new entities and treatments. Still, misdiagnosis is common in this field, leading to nosologic confusion and wrong treatment. Clinical evaluation and imaging are the gold standard for diagnostic confirmation. Sclerotherapy and embolization are the main treatment techniques but are also used preoperatively to reduce blood loss and shrink the lesion if surgery is planned. Despite new treatment options, especially if extensive in size or involving vulnerable structures, vascular malformations are still considered chronic diseases and cause significant morbidity. Common understanding and agreement on terminology and a multidisciplinary approach are the basis of successful ...
We can see the parallels --the tossing aside of Dr. Putnams research after a lack of a cure and the discontent with Dr. Zambonis CCSVI research and the lack of an immediate cure. I worry that the immunological side of MS is given all of the research money and time, while the vascular connection remains underexplored and underfunded. I worry that the focus on a cure is put before the understanding of MS pathogenesis. How can we cure what we do not understand? It bothers me that there is not more curiosity in the neurological world regarding truncular venous malformations and hypo perfusion. As regular people, we can see the direct connection from Dr. Putnams studies on veins in dogs, to Dr. Zambonis discovery of intraluminal malformations in jugular veins, and the hemodynamic changes in blood flow in people with MS. Why is there not more curiosity in MS specialists? Where are the Tracy J. Putnams? ...
Congenital hemangioma can be distinguished from infantile hemangioma because it is fully developed at birth. It forms during prenatal life and has reached its maximal size at birth. Congenital hemangioma can even be diagnosed in utero by prenatal ultrasound. Unlike IH, CH is more common in the extremities, has an equal sex distribution, and is solitary, with an average diameter of 5 cm. It commonly presents in the head and neck and in the lower extremities. Congenital hemangioma are divided into 2 subgroups: the rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICHs) and the non-involuting congenital hemangiomas(NICHs). The rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma, RICH, presents at birth as a solitary raised tumor with a central depression, scar, or ulceration surrounded by a rim of pallor. It is noted for its involution, which typically begins several weeks after birth and is completed no later than 14 months of age.[9] After regression RICH may cause a residual deformity, such as atrophic skin and ...
Grey-scale and Doppler ultrasound (US) are alternative modalities to diagnose soft-tissue vascular anomalies [16]. However, US has only a limited ability to display the full extent of large lesions and to demonstrate an intra-osseous component [17,18]. Some MRI techniques have been used for classification of peripheral vascular lesions [18,19,20]. Time-of-flight MR angiography can show feeding arteries with high-flow; however, this modality has a limitation regarding smaller vessels [19]. A previous study by van Rijswijk et al. [20] has demonstrated that with the use of the dynamic contrast-enhancement gradient-echo technique, venous malformations were distinguished from non-venous malformations with high specificity. Another study has demonstrated that time-resolved MR projection angiography was useful for the separation of high- and low-flow vascular malformations [18]. Although direct puncture venography is useful for the diagnosis of VMs and also for confirming lymphatic fluid leaks to ...
Patients with vascular anomalies (VA) have a spectrum of diseases that can be broadly classified into vascular tumors and malformations. Complicated vascular anomalies can cause disfigurement, chronic pain, and organ dysfunction with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite the severity of potential complications, we lack uniform guidelines for the treatment and response to treatment of children and young adults with these diseases. There are pre-clinical and clinical data supporting the essential regulatory function of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway in vascular growth and organization, and suggest a therapeutic target for patients with complicated vascular anomalies. The overall goal of this trial is to objectively determine the effectiveness and safety of the mTOR inhibitor Rapamycin* in the treatment of children and young adults diagnosed with complicated vascular anomalies. We propose a Phase 2 trial with the diagnostic, therapeutic and response criteria experimentally determined in this ...
Objective: The aim of this study was to analyze a single institutions experience of solitary venous malformation (VM) in the midcheek region. Study design: From 2002 to 2009, a total of 10 consecutive patients with solitary venous malformation in the midcheek region were retrospectively analyzed. Clinical records were reviewed for patient demographic data, presenting symptoms and signs, imaging modalities used, histologic and immunohistochemical results, surgical data, and clinical outcomes. Results: The sample consisted of 5 males and 5 females with a mean age of 42.8 years. The course of disease ranged from 0.5 to 144.0 months with a mean time of 64.9 months. The mean size of the masses was 1.7 × 1.5 cm (range 1.0 × 0.8 cm to 2.5 × 2.5 cm). Investigations included Doppler ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) scanning. Surgical excision using various surgical approaches was performed in all patients. Postoperative pathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of VM. The mean ...
The relationship of the vascular system in MS is being explored, and dealt with in a sideways manner by neurologists. I do not expect we will ever hear that CCSVI is valid science from neurologists--they will attempt to rename it, requantify slowed venous return and hypoperfusion, and make it their own. They will call Dr. Zambonis discovery of CCSVI junk science- while they are working on patenting drugs to address blood flow in pwMS. This is because neurologists work with pharma and write prescriptions. They do not deal with the mechanistics of the brains circulation or with the venous malformations Dr. Zamboni has discovered. They are not phlebologists or vascular surgeons. For MS specialists, this discovery of hemodynamic alterations goes beyond their practical expertise. ...
Vascular malformations (VM) are complex lesions present in various anatomical locations with a variety of clinical manifestations. Time-resolved MRA combined with parallel imaging and echo sharing schemes offer a reasonable alternative to more invasive diagnostic methods such as digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in evaluation of VMs. MRI is becoming the imaging modality of choice in assessing morphological issues regarding VMs. Time-resolved MRA can play an important role in characterizing these lesions and can influence therapeutic decision-making.

Vascular malformations of the limbs are rare congenital anomalies with only 20% of these cases reported to have associated osseous involvement [1]. According to the international society for the study of vascular anomalies (ISSVA), vascular anomalies are divided into vascular tumours and vascular malformations (VM). Vascular tumours are further subdivided into benign, borderline and malignant tumours, while VM are further classified into 5 types: the 1st is the simple type (one type of malformation in the lesion as capillary or venous or lymphatic or arterial), AVM and AVF are also included in this group, the 2nd type of VM is the combined type (two or more malformations in the same lesion as CVM, CAVM, CLAVM), the 3rd type of VM are malformations of major named vessels, also called truncal malformations, and these are further classified according to the type of the involved vessels (lymphatics, veins, arteries ) or classified according to the nature of the defect as abnormalities of origin, ...
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are increased in rat and mouse models of hypoxic hypoperfusion and have been associated with OLG death. However, whether the MMPs act on myelin or OLGs remains unresolved. We hypothesized that delayed expression of MMPs caused OLG death and myelin breakdown. To test the hypothesis, adult mice underwent hypoxic hypoperfusion with transient bilateral occlusion of the carotid arteries. After 3 days of reperfusion, ischemic white matter had increased reactivity of astrocytes and microglia, MMP-2 localization in astrocytes, and increased protein expression and activity of MMP-2. In addition, there was a significant loss of myelin basic protein (MBP) by Western blot and caspase-3- mediated OLG death. Treatment with the broad-spectrum MMP inhibitor, BB-94, significantly decreased astrocyte reactivity and MMP-2 activity. More importantly, it reduced MBP breakdown. However, MMP inhibition had no effect on OLG loss. Our results implicate MMPs released by reactive ...
I became interested in multiple sclerosis (MS) research when my husband Jeff was diagnosed with MS in 2007. I noted a connection of Jeffs disease process to his circulation and blood, and by accessing medical journals on the internet and stacks of books at my local library, I put together research to address this. I sent my theory and research, called the Endothelial Health Program, to universities, and began a correspondence with vascular specialists at Stanford University. Jeff was the first American treated for CCSVI, and he is now eight years past his venoplasty, with no further MS progression, healing of his gray matter, and relief of many symptoms. Hes still jogging, working full time as a composer and conductor, and traveling the globe ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Anatomical repair of a persistent left superior vena cava into the left atrium. AU - Ugaki, Shinya. AU - Kasahara, Shingo. AU - Fujii, Yasuhiro. AU - Sano, Shunji. PY - 2010/8. Y1 - 2010/8. N2 - The anatomy of a persistent left superior vena cava (SVC) to the left atrium (LA) without the innominate vein can make it challenging to complete intracardiac repair. We reviewed our five cases of the direct end-to-side anastomosis of SVCs to facilitate anatomical repair of SVC-right atrial connection for biventricular repair. Diagnoses were two partial atrioventricular septal defect with left isomerism, one complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD) with left isomerism, one CAVSD without isomerism and one atrioventricular discordance and double outlet right ventricle with right isomerism. Mean age at the operation was 20±23 months (4-58 months) and body weight was 7.8±3.4 kg (4.8-12.7 kg). After completion of intracardiac repair, the SVC to LA was divided and end-to-side ...
The persistence of left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is the most common congenital anomaly of the venous return system to the heart. Because of the increasing number of patients referred for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices implantations, it is expected to encounter this venous anatomic variation. Left ventricular lead placement at an appropriate site is an integral and technically challenging part of successful CRT. In case of cardiac abnormalities could be difficult to achieve an optimal cardiac rhythm management devices implantation. Previous reports in patients with PLSVC highlighted the challenges to achieve an optimal cardiac rhythm device implantation. Recently, a new quadripolar active fixation left ventricular lead is available for CRT device implantation. Hereby we report a case of a device upgrading from dual-chamber pacemaker to CRT with defibrillator backup using the active fixation left ventricular quadripolar lead in a patient with PLSVC and right superior vena cava atresia.
Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) and horseshoe kidney (HSK) are common congenital abnormalities; however presence of both in the same person is extremely rare. A patient with hepatitis C cirrhosis awaiting transplant presented with worsening liver dysfunction, diagnosed with acute renal failure secondary to hepatorenal syndrome, and required X-ray fluoroscopy guided tunneled venous catheter placement for hemodialysis. Review of imaging studies demonstrated coexistence of PLSVC and HSK. PLSVC in adulthood is usually incidental with the most common drainage pattern being without physiologic dysfunction. Isolated horseshoe kidney is still the most common of renal fusion anomalies; however etiology of coexistent PLSVC remains unknown.
CONGENITAL anomalies of the great veins of the neck are relatively infrequent. Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is an embryologic remnant of the left superior cardinal vein seen in 0.1 to 0.3% of healthy adults.1 PLSVC runs between the left pulmonary veins and the left atrial appendage enlarging the coronary sinus as it enters the atrium. When present, it can affect placement of central catheters, pacemakers, and cardiopulmonary bypass. It is important to be aware of this variation and to recognize it in imaging studies ...
INTRODUCTION: Floating thrombus in an aberrant right subclavian artery is a rare cause of peripheral arterial embolic events. CASE REPORT: We report a 45-year-old woman who presented with an ischemia of the right superior limb from embolic event. The diagnosis of mobile thrombus in an aberrant right subclavian artery was obtained with transoesophageal echocardiography and computed tomography. After three weeks of oral anticoagulant therapy, there was no significant resolution of the thrombus, and a surgical treatment was performed to prevent further embolization. The surgical procedure consisted of thrombectomy and reimplantation of the aberrant right subclavian artery to the right carotid artery. Postoperative recovery was uneventful. CONCLUSION: This case report illustrates that transoesophageal echography and computed tomography are useful to detect mobile thrombus of the thoracic aorta and is warranted in any embolic event in young patients.
Aberrant subclavian artery is a rare vascular anomaly that is present from birth. It usually causes no symptoms and is often discovered as an incidental finding (such as through a barium swallow or echocardiogram). Occasionally the anomaly causes swallowing difficulty (dysphagia lusoria). Swallowing symptoms in children may present as feeding difficulty and/or recurrent respiratory tract infection. When aberrant subclavian artery causes no symptoms, treatment is not needed. If the anomaly is causing significant symptoms, treatment may involve surgery. Children with symptomatic aberrant subclavian artery should be carefully evaluated for additional vascular and heart anomalies ...
Background: Scimitar syndrome is a rare and complex congenital defect that often involves hypoplasia of the right lung, partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection of the right lung draining into the inferior vena cava, and a systemic collateral artery from the descending aorta supplying the right lower lobe (lobar sequestration). Our case was a male newborn with scimitar syndrome associated with an absent right pulmonary artery, imperforated anus, and coarctation of the aorta. Hemodinamically, the patient was asymptomatic and diagnosed accidentally. This combination has not been reported before. The pathological process of the scimitar syndrome is unclear. However, it appears to originate from a basic developmental disorder of the complete pulmonary bud early in embryogenesis. This rare syndrome with different presentations can occur alone or in combination with cardiac and /or non-cardiac anomalies.

In each case, an insidious clinical course, combined with the pathognomonic finding of radiating trabeculae on ...
Of a total of 213 patients with spinal vascular malformations, 27 (12.7%) had vascular malformations in the cervical spine. The mean patient age was 46.1 ± 21.9 years and 16 (59.3%) were male. The most common presentations were lower-extremity weakness (13 patients, 48.1%), tetraparesis (8 patients, 29.6%), and lower-extremity sensory dysfunction (7 patients, 25.9%). Nine patients (33.3%) presented with hemorrhage. Fifteen patients (55.6%) had modified Rankin Scale scores of 0-2 at the time of diagnosis. Regarding angioarchitectural characteristics, 8 patients (29.6%) had intramedullary arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), 5 (18.5%) had epidural arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs), 4 (14.8%) had paraspinal fistulas, 4 (14.8%) had mixed epidural/intradural fistulas, 3 (11.1%) had perimedullary AVMs, 2 (7.4%) had dural fistulas, and 1 patient (3.7%) had a perimedullary AVF. ...
A two-year-old Border Collie presented with a three-month history of regurgitation. Investigation with plain radiography, digital fluoroscopy, endoscopy and CT angiography (CTA) confirmed the presence of an aberrant right subclavian artery causing dorsal oesophageal compression. In this report, CTA was used to depict the anatomy of an aberrant right subclavian vessel and to highlight the importance of this imaging modality to identify the structures involved in a vascular ring. This report also identifies a patient with a congenital vascular ring anomaly presenting with adult-onset regurgitation, which has been successfully managed with medical treatment. ...
Shivaram: Historically, there hasnt been a great way to treat them. In interventional radiology (IR) we would use sclerotherapy, which involved injecting the venous malformation with medications to scar the veins down, but this often required multiple sessions with variable results. Surgical removal alone was problematic because malformations bleed a lot and its hard to get around them.. This new hybrid procedure has revolutionized the way they are managed. While the patient is under anesthesia, we inject glue into the channels of the venous malformation, which we can see with ultrasound. The patient then goes to the operating room (OR) where the surgeon can see the malformation (due to the hardened glue) and surgically remove it. There is much less bleeding since the vascular channels of the malformation are blocked. We have performed more than 40 of these procedures over the last year and our patients have done amazingly well.. ...
A venous malformation (VM) is a place in the body where veins havent developed in the usual way. Veins in a VM tend to be larger and more tangled than normal veins. A venous (VEE-nis) malformation close to the skin usually looks like a maroon, blue, or purple spot.. Kids who have VMs are born with them. A VM might not be visible until later when it has gotten bigger or its veins have stretched. Venous malformations that are deep in the muscles or body might not be found until a child has pain or swelling. A VM grows as a child grows, and also might be more noticeable in response to injury or partial removal.. ...

Erondu-Cymet Syndrome, 978-620-0-83887-2, Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Erondu-Cymet syndrome is a syndrome caused by a translocation on the . The genetic for people with this condition is 46, XY, inv(21)(q11.2q22.1). Findings in these patients include: hypotension, hypoxemia, seizures, and impairment of cognitive ability. Patients with this condition may have persistent left superior vena cava that drains into the left atrium, as well as pulmonary arterio-venous malformations. Erondu-Cymet Syndrome was discovered in 2006 by Ugochi Erondu and . In 2000, researchers working on the announced that they had determined the sequence of that make up this chromosome. Chromosome 21 was the second human chromosome to be fully sequenced.
The field of vascular anomalies has grown rapidly in last 25 years. Molecular genetics has led to discovery of genes that cause vascular anomalies. Interventional radiology has become a major contributor to accurate diagnosis and management of previously untreatable disorders. New pharmacologic therapies are under investigation and surgical protocols have been established.

Aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) or arteria lusoria is one of the most common congenital aortic arch anomaly with prevalence ranging from 1-2%. However, it is mostly asymptomatic and consequently often found sporadically during various diagnostic procedures with prevalence of 0.45% during coronary angiography.
Thus , a lot of IVF specialists , before doing an IVF cycle , will routinely refer their patient to a gynecologist , and will ask them to do a hysteroscopy and/or laparoscopy for them. The purported reason for this is to optimize the endometrial cavity , in order to enhance embryo implantation. This is often done by doing a procedure called metroplasty, which is supposed to increase the capacity of the uterine cavity. This is a procedure which seems to be performed only in India ; and there is no evidence that it actually helps fertility rates at all. After all , the shape of the endometrial cavity has very little bearing on the fertility potential of the woman ; and there are a lot of normal anatomic variants within the fertile population as well. However, when an infertility specialist sees these normal anatomic variants in an infertile women, they tend to over treat them, and refer them to endoscopic surgeons to do procedures which not only are not helpful , but can actually be harmful . They ...

Conventional radiography may show a soft-tissue mass and calcifications. Ultrasound features are nonspecific with an ill-defined, variably echogenic lesion that may contain foci of calcification [2], but Doppler ultrasound plays a key role for diagnosis because it demonstrates its high vascularised nature. Nevertheless, MR imaging of the affected skin region constitutes the best diagnostic imaging method. T1-weighted imaging reveals typical ill-defined hypointense soft-tissue thickening involving multiple planes, and on T2-weighted imaging it demonstrates heterogeneous hyperintense masses with internal dark signal intensity channels, due to vascular flow voids. The post-contrast sequences reveal diffuse and heterogeneous enhancement [1-4]. Although whole-body MR is not necessary for diagnosis, it may be considered during diagnostic work-up of patients with clinically suspected vascular malformations, to identify multiple lesions and their distribution in diffuse vascular malformations, such as ...
Doctor Orange characterized CMTC as neither tumor nor vascular malformation, but something in between. Furthermore, CMTC may diminish somewhat over time, but does not disappear completely.

The presentation can be found on our website in the members section.. Propranolol, an old beta-blocker, was discovered by chance as an option for the treatment of hemangiomas. However, there are many uncertainties regarding the safety and monitoring of this therapy. The most serious side effects are bradycardia and hypotension. Infants with large hemangiomas or miliary hemangiomatosis are at risk of cardiac output problems. Also, propranolol may mask hypoglycemia in these patients, which can lead to severe neurological side effects. Generally in the Netherlands and elsewhere there are various therapies - protocols.

PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of cryoablation in the treatment of low-flow malformations, specifically venous malformation (VM) and fibroadipose vascular anomaly (FAVA). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 11 consecutive patients with low-flow malformations (14 lesions; 9 VM, 5 FAVA), median lesion volume 10.8 cm3, (range, 1.8-55.6 cm3) with a median age of 19 years (range, 10-50 years) who underwent cryoablation to achieve symptomatic control. Average follow-up was at a median of 207 days postprocedure (range, 120-886 days). Indications for treatment included focal pain and swelling. Technical success was achieved if the cryoablation ice ball covered the region of the malformation that corresponded to the patients symptoms. Clinical success was considered complete if all symptoms resolved and partial if some symptoms persisted but did not necessitate further treatment. RESULTS: The technical success rate was 100%. At 1-month follow-up, 13 of 14 lesions ...
