A Closer Look at the Diagnosis and Management of Peripheral Vascular Lesions of the Oral Cavity: Report of 4 Cases with Review of Literature

  title={A Closer Look at the Diagnosis and Management of Peripheral Vascular Lesions of the Oral Cavity: Report of 4 Cases with Review of Literature},
  author={Bacem A. E. Ottoman},
Since treatment options for vascular anomalies are widely variable and often debated, it is fundamentally significant to differentiate vascular tumors from vascular malformations. On the one hand, vascular malformations are usually congenital and potentially progressive without involution. They usually expand because of hormonal changes such as trauma, puberty, aging or pregnancy. On the other hand, vascular tumors are neoplastic. Hemagiomas are interchangeably used to depict all vascular… Expand


Vascular low-flow malformations in children: current concepts for classification, diagnosis and therapy.
The role of the radiologist in the management of patients is two-fold: making the diagnosis with the use of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, and performing sclerotherapy, which is the treatment of choice. Expand
Multiple Venous Malformations with Phleboliths: Radiological-Pathological Correlation
The imaging and histopathologic findings in a patient with multiple venous malformations affecting the left side of the face and trunk are reported. Expand
GLUT1: a newly discovered immunohistochemical marker for juvenile hemangiomas.
It is reported here that high endothelial immunoreactivity for the erythrocyte-type glucose transporter protein GLUT1 is a specific feature of juvenile hemangiomas during all phases of these lesions. Expand
Hemangiomas and Vascular Malformations: Current Theory and Management
Current theory and practice in the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of these more common vascular anomalies are reviewed. Expand
Soft-tissue venous malformations in pediatric and young adult patients: diagnosis with Doppler US.
Doppler US is a noninvasive, easily available, and rapid mode of investigation of vascular lesions and can help confirm the diagnosis of VM when it shows a characteristic flow pattern. Expand
Histopathology of vascular anomalies.
In the discussion, the clinical, histological, and, when applicable, the immunophenotypic presentation of vascular anomalies commonly seen in infancy and early childhood are presented. Expand
Diagnosis and management of pediatric cervicofacial venous malformations: Retrospective review from a vascular anomalies center
A cohort of pediatric patients with cervicofacial venous malformations (CFVM) is analyzed with the goal of developing a treatment algorithm for these complex lesions. Expand
Sclerotherapy of craniofacial venous malformations: complications and results.
Sclerotherapy with ethanol or sodium tetradecyl sulfate is an effective and safe treatment for craniofacial venous malformations and only male sex and number of sclerotherapeutic procedures were significant multivariate predictors of outcome. Expand
Molecular genetics of vascular malformations.
Most anomalies occur sporadically, but there are families exhibiting autosomal dominant inheritance and genetic studies of such families have resulted in the identification of mutated genes, directly giving proof of their important role in the regulation of angiogenesis. Expand
Sclerotherapy of voluminous venous malformation in head and neck with absolute ethanol under digital subtraction angiography guidance
It is concluded that sclerotherapy with absolute ethanol under DSA guidance is an important alternative therapy for voluminous and extensive VM, as the procedure is reasonably safe and offers good therapeutic results. Expand
