PURPOSE To characterize the MR appearance of the common hemangioma of infancy as well as low- and high-flow vascular malformations of the head and neck. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty patients with vascular lesions of the head and neck proved either by pathology, angiography, and/or unequivocal clinical diagnosis were included. Vascular lesions included 15 low-flow lesions (four hemangiomas, 10 venous malformations, one lymphatic malformation), and five high-flow lesions (three arteriovenous… Expand
MR characteristics of low-flow facial vascular malformations in children and young adults.
TLDR
Low-flow vascular malformations involving the face in children and young adults have a heterogeneous and nonspecific appearance on MR images and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all facial masses presenting in children or young adults. Expand
Vascular malformations of the tongue: MRI findings on three cases.
Vascular malformations are common lesions accounting for approximately 7% of all benign tumours, the majority of which develop in the head and neck region. Generally, vascular malformations such asExpand
Deep Infantile Hemangiomas and Early Venous Malformations: Differential Diagnosis by 3D CT Angiography
TLDR
The medical history and clinical presentation associated with deep infantile hemangiomas (DIHs) and early venous malformations (EVMs) can be much confusing and 3D-CTA images accurately diagnosed DIH and EVM in all cases. Expand
The role of MRI in diagnostic algorithm of cervicofacial vascular anomalies in children
TLDR
With ultrasound used mostly for initial diagnosis and additional flow assessment, angiography viewed as an invasive therapeutic method and computed tomography used only in specific situations due to its high irradiation dose, magnetic resonance is the best imaging method used in differential diagnosis and topographical characterization of vascular malformations and tumors of cervicofacial area in children. Expand
The role of MRI in the evaluation of vascular malformations
TLDR
MRI and MR angiography appear to play a significant role in the assessment of vascular malformations, and DSA is still required for more vascular detail delineation and definitive treatment decisions, however, the protocol for imaging such vascular malformation should include dynamic postcontrast 3D gradient-echo MRI with STIR sequences. Expand
Comprehensive time-resolved MRI of peripheral vascular malformations.
TLDR
MRI and MR angiography appear to be valuable for the assessment of vascular malformations of the extremities, and the protocol for imaging suchmalformations should combine dynamic contrast-enhanced 3D gradient-echo MRI with STIR sequences. Expand
Imaging of head and neck venous malformations
TLDR
Image-guided sclerotherapy alone or in combination with surgery is now the first line treatment option in many cases of head and neck venous malformations, so the radiologist is now an integral part of the multidisciplinary management team. Expand
Head and neck haemangiomas: contrast-enhanced three-dimensional MR angiography
TLDR
The clinical effectiveness of contrast-enhanced three-dimensional magnetic resonance angiography for diagnosing head and neck haemangiomas was evaluated and a mass was partially visible as an enhancing lesion on the early phase of MRA and completely visible in the late phase, showing slow blood flow. Expand
Hemangiomas of the head, neck, and chest with associated vascular and brain anomalies: a complex neurocutaneous syndrome.
TLDR
This study demonstrates the association of cutaneous angiomas with anomalies affecting intracranial and extracranial arteries, the cerebellum, and, less frequently, the cerebral hemispheres and aortic arch constitutes a relatively frequent neurocutaneous disorder, which it is called the cutaneous hemangioma-vascular complex syndrome. Expand
Pediatric head and neck lesions: assessment of vascularity by MR digital subtraction angiography.
TLDR
Early experience suggests that MR digital subtraction angiography can be reliably performed in children of all ages without complication and provided a noninvasive assessment of the vascularity of each lesion. Expand

MR imaging of head and neck vascular malformations
TLDR
MR imaging does not replace other studies but represents an important complementary study for the delineation and diagnosis of deep extensions of vascular malformations, allowing better planning of therapy. Expand
MR imaging of symptomatic peripheral vascular malformations.
TLDR
Results show that slow-flow venous malformations can be distinguished from high-flow arteriovenousmalformations and fistulas on the basis of spin-echo MR signal characteristics. Expand
Childhood hemangiomas and vascular malformations: angiographic differentiation.
TLDR
The authors reviewed the preoperative angiograms of 14 children who had cellular analyses of resected vascular lesions and found that the vascular malformations, although angiographically variable depending on the predominant vascular channel type, were diffuse lesions consisting entirely of vessels without intervening tissue stain. Expand
MR imaging of cavernous hemangioma of the face and neck.
TLDR
Four patients with cavernous hemangioma of face and neck were evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging and Spin-echo technique with long echo time appears to be particularly useful to delineate these lesions. Expand
Biological classification of soft-tissue vascular anomalies: MR correlation.
TLDR
The biological classification of vascular anomalies proposed by Mulliken et al. cleanly separates hemangiomas of infancy from vascular malformations: capillary, lymphatic, venous, arterial, on combined (e.g., capillary venous , lymphaticovenous, AVM). Expand
Angiography in the diagnosis and management of extracranial vascular lesions of the head and neck
TLDR
The angiographic features of various lesions of the head and neck are presented and cavernous hemangioma, AVM, chemodectoma, and angiofibroma is diagnostic and may preclude the need for tissue biopsy. Expand
Venous Malformations in the Face and Neck
TLDR
Instillation of ethanol under radiologic control seems to be a promising way of treatment of venous malformations with marked reduction in size but it was not permanently completely occluded. Expand
Combined treatment of head and neck vascular masses with preoperative embolization
TLDR
Preoperative embolization of these lesions effectively reduces intraoperative blood loss and provides for better exposure in those patients ultimately undergoing resection of these masses. Expand

Eight patients with severe arteriovenous malformations of the head and neck region have been treated by superselective embolization utilizing Ivalon and surgery. Six of those patients underwentExpand
