BACKGROUND Vascular malformations manifest with pain, bleeding, disability, and disfigurement in a subset of children. There are scant data available on the utility and tolerability of laser surgery for symptomatic or disfiguring non-port-wine stain vascular malformations in children. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the utility and tolerability of the 1064-nm long-pulsed neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (LP Nd:YAG) laser for treatment of symptomatic or disfiguring… CONTINUE READING
