Confocal microscopy study of neurovascular distribution in facial port wine stains (capillary malformation).

Abstract

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Vascular ectasia observed in port wine stain (PWS) birthmarks might be secondary to localized reduction of neural innervation and associated loss of autonomic stimulation. Our objective was to investigate this theory and evaluate nerve density, blood vessel density, and average blood vessel size in untreated and pulsed dye laser with… (More)
