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 ...
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 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 nine 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 ...
Direct communication between the right pulmonary artery and the left atrium is a rare congenital vascular malformation. The clinical diagnosis is difficult, and preoperative angiography is essential. We treated this anomaly successfully with surgery
Rare disorder concerning a congenital vascular malformation in the brain that usually leads to severe cardiac decompensation unless treated.
Venous malformations occur when veins do not properly form. They may include vessels that are irregular or enlarged, and may lack the valves that prevent backflow in normal venous structures.

In addition, MRA is helpful in assessing vascular malformations, which occur when blood or lymph vessels fail to develop normally before birth. The affected vessels become tangled and change the normal flow of the blood through the brain. Some patients have headaches and seizures, but others may be asymptomatic. Vascular malformations can cause hemorrhage and subsequent neurologic damage. Lastly, MRA may aid in evaluating some types of headaches.. Compared with catheter angiography, MRA is less invasive, less expensive, and faster to perform. For conventional angiography, a catheter is inserted though the patients groin and threaded up into the artery in the brain. MRA does not require this catheter. As a result, it eliminates related complications such as possible damage to an artery.. In addition, because MRA relies on the natural magnetic properties of hydrogen atoms in the body, injections of contrast material are not always needed. This feature is especially important in patients who have ...

The medical condition I have is called "venous Malformation" and it is pretty much all throughout my right leg. My leg below the knee was so bad that the doctors told my parents that if I dont have an amputation I will die soon. My parents went to see many different doctors but they all said the same thing. They waited until I was two, and there goes my right leg (below the knee). I still had venous malformations in my thigh but it was not as bad as below the knee, also, if I lost my whole leg, it would have been much harder for me to learn how to walk. So they decided to keep it ...

HHT is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with varying degrees of penetrance and expressivity. Defects in two genes have thus far been identified as being responsible for the induction of the vascular malformations seen in HHT. These genes are endoglin (chromosome 9, HHT-1) and ALK-1 (chromosome 12, HHT-2), both of which encode for vascular endothelial transmembrane receptors of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) (1). TGF-β, in turn, plays a role in endothelial cell resolution via activation of the ALK-1 pathway and in endothelial cell activation via activation of the ALK-5 pathway. A reduction of the levels of endoglin in HHT-1 may lead to a decrease in TGF-β levels, affecting both the ALK-1 and ALK-5 pathways. The ALK-5 pathway, however, has a higher sensitivity to the remaining TGF-β than the ALK-1 pathway, thereby preferentially stimulating endothelial cell activation. In HHT-2, reduced ALK-1 proteins leads to preferential relative overactivity of the ALK-5 pathway, again ...

The most important question regarding treatments for CCSVI, however, regards the safety of such a management of venous outflow blockages. Such a management strategy is actually recommended by the Consensus Document of the International Union of Phlebology for the diagnosis and treatment of venous malformations. However, although similar endovascular procedures for the treatment of other venous pathologies are known to carry very low risk, an actual rate of complications related to such treatments for CCSVI remains undetermined, mainly because these procedures are not yet routinely performed in these cases. Moreover, recently in some neurological papers it has been claimed that surgical treatment for CCSVI can be dangerous. Interestingly, these statements were based only of the beliefs of the authors, and not on the body of evidence. Contrary to those opinions, in our clinic we have demonstrated that these procedures are safe and usually well-tolerated by the patients ...

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.
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.
... 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 ...
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.. ...

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.

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 ...

Twenty-two patients who had evidence of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage in brain computerized tomographic(CT) scan specially with small vascular malformations who were angiographically verified and unknown causes, were reviewed. The majority of patients were in first and second decades of life. The duration of symptoms from onset to admission showed relatively short in verified cases and even distributed from 1 day to 1 month in unknown cases. The most common presenting symptoms and signs were headache and papilledema in unknown cases. In brain CT scan, variable findings were seen as hematoma with surrounding eidence of vascular anomaly, hematoma only and blood-fluid level in verified cases, and tumor-like findings in unknown cases. The most common site of hematoma were parietal and occipital lobes in verified cases and were parietal and infratentorial area in unknown cases. The results achieved with excision of these cases were good. These small vascular malformations require special ...
Cerebral Aneurysms and Vascular Malformations. Cerebral Aneurysm. A complex network of blood vessels supplies the brain and eye. Occasionally, a blood vessel wall can become weak. If an abnormal outpouching in the wall of a blood vessel develops, it is called an aneurysm. An aneurysm in the brain can expand and press on important structures such as nerves, leading to loss of vision or double vision. A sudden rupture of an aneurysm can be fatal. Treatment of aneurysms by an interventional neuroradiologist or neurosurgeon must be performed urgently if there is a risk for rupture. Dr. Banik coordinates and expedites care for her patients. She makes sure to get them the timely care they require.. Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). Another blood vessel abnormality that can cause vision loss is an arteriovenous malformation (AVM). An AVM is an abnormal direct communication between an artery (high flow vessel) and a vein (low flow vessel). The AVM causes expansion and dilation of the veins. This can ...

What are vascular anomalies? Vascular anomalies refer to a rare group of disorders of abnormal growth of vascular tissue and/or extra blood vessels. Vascular anomalies are benign, not cancer; they usually are superficial and occur on the skin, however, they may involve an internal organ such as the liver. Most hemangiomas do not cause physical problems and may involute and disappear over time. Occasionally they may be associated with skin ulceration, low platelet counts, and bleeding. They are broadly categorized as:
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are the most dangerous of the congenital vascular malformations with the potential to cause intracranial hemorrhage and epilepsy in many cases. They have become the focus of scientific study leading to technological
Vascular malformations and hemangiomas are benign, (good natured) lesions. Most lesions do not cause symptoms although the lesion is often markedly different to normal tissues which can make them obvious.. Hemangiomas can outgrow their blood supply causing ulceration and spontaneous bleeding. A growing lesion around a body opening such as the nostrils or ear can cause obstruction or prevent normal hearing development. Eyelid haemangiomas can prevent normal development of sight and cause pressure on the eyeball. Neck haemangiomas can sometimes lead to airway obstruction. Very large malformations can cause trapping of platelets with clotting (bleeding) abnormalities.. Vascular malformations can cause pain, swelling and discomfort due to engorgement and swelling of the abnormal vessels. Underlying bone and soft tissues may be stimulated to grow abnormally fast in relation to surrounding tissues in some types of malformations. Lymphatic malformations affecting the skin can cause recurrent skin ...
MRI can also enhance the diagnosis, especially in situations of rectal malformations8. In addition to the thickening seen, a high T2 signal intensity can be seen, thought to be due to the slow flow. Increased signal intensity is also noted in the perirectal fat with serpiginous structures correlating to the small vessels supplying the hemangioma (Figure 5). These MR features are not found in other clinical entities, and thus a higher specificity, especially over CT can help in diagnosis. Though hemorrhoids can present with similar T2 findings, the difference in the two entities can be seen by location and lack of perirectal fat extension or abnormalities in hemorrhoids. Phleboliths and calcifications are less easily detected on MR vs. CT or plain film.. Ultrasound. One instance of massive hemorrhage in pregnancy was diagnosed with the use of endorectal ultrasound (Figure 6). The diagnosis was aided by the utilization of Doppler studies demonstrating pulsitile flow45.. Angiography. Mesenteric ...

Theres no miracle food to prevent erectile dysfunction. However, there is some evidence that certain foods may help. "Evidence that foods can help with ED is probably related to a vascular connection," says Firouz Daneshgari, MD, professor and chairman of the department of urology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. "Erectile problems are usually due to not having a good blood supply to the penis, so foods that are good for your vascular system may also help prevent ED." Should you eat more of the foods containing these key nutrients ...
Transplanting pancreatic islets into the liver through the portal vein is currently the most common procedure in clinical islet transplantations for treating patients with brittle type 1 diabetes. However, most islet grafts fail within a 5-year period necessitating retransplantation. The vascular connections are disrupted at islet isolation and implanted islets depend on diffusion of oxygen and nutrients in the immediate posttransplantation period. Rapid and efficient revascularization is of utmost importance for the survival and long-term function of transplanted islets. In this thesis, the influence of the implantation microenvironment for islet engraftment and function was studied. Islets were transplanted into the liver, the renal subcapsular site or the pancreas. Islets implanted into the liver contained fewer glucagon-positive cells than islets implanted to the kidney and endogenous islets. Intraportally transplanted islets responded with insulin and glucagon release to secretagogues, but ...

This case series of 5 patients describes the authors approach to using dynamic MRA with direct puncture of venous malformations to define the angioarchitecture and draining veins in these lesions. MultiHance in a 1:100 dilution with normal saline solution was used for the contrast administration. Precontrast images were used as a mask and were digitally subtracted from the postcontrast images (13- and 51-second acquisitions, respectively). The authors conclude that they have developed a method to completely eliminate digital subtraction angiography x-ray radiation exposure during treatment of venous vascular malformations. ...
Association of facial, retinal and cerebral AVMs was first recognised by Bonnet, Dechaume and Blanc in Lyon, France in 1937 and Wyburn-Mason in London in 1943. In 2001, Bhattacharya et al suggested that the wide spectrum of phenotypic expression brought about by combination of individual vascular malformations is merely a reflection of the transverse (metameric) pattern of the underlying cerebrofacial disorder, as a result of abnormal development of neural crest or adjacent cephalic mesoderm.1 They suggested the name CAMS with a view of encompassing conditions with arterial or venous malformations that simultaneously involves the face and the brain. A previous comprehensive review by Schmidt et al found fewer than 100 cases reported in the literature.2. A new classification and diagnostic criteria were introduced, based on the metameric organisation of the central nervous system as well as the associated facial skeleton involvement derived from the same portion of the neural crest.1 Three ...

Elisa Boscolo, PhD Venous Malformation (VM): murine model to identify therapies to target aberrant venous development Venous malformation
BACKGROUND. Sporadic vascular malformations (VMs) are complex congenital anomalies of blood vessels that lead to stroke, life-threatening bleeds, disfigurement, overgrowth, and/or pain. Therapeutic options are severely limited and multi-disciplinary management remains challenging, particularly for high-flow arteriovenous malformations (AVM). METHODS. To investigate the pathogenesis of sporadic intracranial and extracranial VMs in 160 children in which known genetic causes had been excluded, we sequenced DNA from affected tissue and optimised analysis for detection of low mutant allele frequency. RESULTS. We discovered multiple mosaic activating variants in four genes of the RAS-MAPK pathway, KRAS, NRAS, BRAF, and MAP2K1, a pathway commonly activated in cancer and responsible for the germ-line RAS-opathies. These variants were more frequent in high-flow than low-flow VMs. In vitro characterisation and two transgenic zebrafish AVM models which recapitulated the human phenotype validated the ...

The Vascular Anomalies Group evaluates patients with a variety of vascular tumors, malformations, and associated syndromes including the newly categorized PIK3CA-related overgrowth spectrum (PROS), formerly labeled overgrowth syndromes ...
The results of the present study indicate that TAK1 acts as an AMPKα1 kinase in endothelial cells and positively regulates VEGF-induced, TNF-α-induced, and IL-1β-induced angiogenesis by increasing the expression of the antioxidative mitochondrial enzyme, SOD2. Indeed, superoxide production and the mitochondrial membrane potential were reduced in the absence of TAK1, and the impaired endothelial cell sprouting from aortic rings from TAKΔEC and AMPKα1ΔEC mice was rescued in the presence of PEG-SOD.. The global deletion of TAK1 impairs embryonic development in C. elegans,23 zebrafish, and mice.13 Both the global and endothelial-specific deletions of TAK1 result in vascular malformation, dilated capillaries, and defects in vascular stabilization,14 and correlate well with the phenotype of endothelial cell-specific TGF-β type II receptor conditional mutants.24 In addition to its role in vascular development, TAK1 has also been implicated in the TGF-β-induced regulation of matrix ...

The same safety measures are being obtained on all patients. Efficacy measures were individualized as enrolllees do not have the same underlying vascular anomaly. The study is structured to include a 24 month drug-phase and a 24 month follow-up phase. The study is now closed to enrollment ...
Duodenum inversum is a rare congenital anomaly of unknown etiology whereby the duodenum travels superiorly to the level of the duodenal bulb and then posteriorly prior to crossing the midline above the pancreas. We describe the first pediatric case of duodenum inversum presenting as partial proximal intestinal obstruction that was medically managed without surgical intervention.
Malformation: Malformation, in biology, irregular or abnormal structural development. Malformations occur in both plants and animals and have a number of causes. The processes of development are regulated in such a way that few malformed organisms are found. Those that do appear may, when properly studied, shed
