Treatment of Vascular Anomalies in Children and Adults
Dr. Dov Goldenberg is worldwide recognized as one of the most experienced specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular anomalies.
This is a very specific area in which the diagnosis is precisely carried out, to allow adequate treatment. They are often rare events where clinical experience and experience are fundamental.
For each situation, treatment options are different and the proper indication determines the success of the treatment.
Vascular abnormalities may be vascular tumors or vascular malformations. But what exactly do they mean?
A vascular tumor is a collection of cells of vascular origin that arise at some point and multiply without proper control. Its growth can lead to deformities or compromise important structures and require treatment. The most common vascular tumor is INFANTILE HEMANGIOMA which affects children soon after birth. They can be small and regress without major problems, but they can grow fast and require urgent treatment.
Treatment of Infantile hemangiomas can be done with medications or surgically, and Dr. Dov’s team performed all types of treatment for the Infantile hemangioma.
Vascular malformations are alterations in the development of blood vessels, which occur even when the baby is in formation, that is, still in the uterus of the pregnant woman. Therefore, they may already be present at birth or even diagnosed previous to delivery. Prognosis depends on the type of vessel involved and a medical evaluation is more than essential for diagnosis. Often, imaging tests like ultrasound and MRI are needed. The need for treatment can occur at any age.
Treatment of malformations is very distinctive from treatment of vascular tumors and requires the participation of a multidisciplinary team. Our team is experienced and highly qualified, working in the best medical centers in the country. Endovascular procedures, lasers, medications and surgery may be needed.
