Vascular malformations are the problems of vessels that may be present from birth. The problem may occur in veins, in lymph vessels, or both in veins and lymph vessels, or both in arteries and veins. If only veins are involved it is called venous malformation, if only lymph vessels are involved it is called lymphatic malformations, if both veins and lymph vessels are involved it is called venolymphatic malformations, if arteries and veins are involved it is called arteriovenous malformations. You may not experience any symptoms but may get triggered during adolescence, some major surgery, injury or trauma, or during pregnancy. It is important to diagnose the type of malformations for proper treatment. CARE Hospitals provide the best diagnosis and treatment for all types of vascular malformations.
There are different types of vascular malformations. The common types of vascular malformations are:
Vascular malformations may include different types of genetic or inherited conditions. The different types of syndromes associated with vascular malformations include Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome, Proteus syndrome, Parkes Weber syndrome, Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, etc.
Vascular malformations are present at birth but become apparent during different ages. Most malformations occur during the development of veins, arteries, or lymph vessels and there is no particular cause for them.
Vascular malformation could occur due to abnormal growth and development of a single type of vessel or a combination of different vessels. Malformations can grow in size over the years and can result in different types of problems depending on the type of vessel involved. They could not cause any harm or may be very serious and some could be life-threatening.
Vascular malformations can produce different types of symptoms depending on where they are located in the body.
When you schedule an appointment with a doctor at the CARE Hospitals, the doctor will take a complete physical and medical history. The doctor will also do a physical examination. He will first try to determine if the anomaly is a vascular malformation or not. In some cases, vascular malformation could be a part of a more complicated condition that includes multiple problems and may affect different organs.
The doctor may recommend imaging tests to diagnose the condition. The imaging tests may include ultrasound, MRI, and angiography.
Treatment options vary depending on the type of blood vessel involved, the type of vascular malformation, and any syndrome associated with it. It also depends on the general health of the person. Treatment aims to give relief from the symptoms of vascular malformations as there is no cure for it. The doctor at the CARE Hospitals will listen to you and will make a suitable treatment plan depending on your individual needs.
Treatment options may include dealing with minor cosmetic concerns and offering life-saving care for complications. The treatment options for vascular malformations are:
Vascular malformations are congenital but may not show any symptoms till a person becomes an adult. There are different types of vascular malformations depending on the type of vessel involved. The symptoms may appear later in life after a trauma, MRI or CT scan tests, or during pregnancy. It is important to determine the type of vascular malformation and type of vessel involved for getting the best treatment plan. There is no permanent cure for the problem but symptoms can be managed and complications can be prevented.
