Vascular Anomalies

The Vascular Anomalies Program in DII provides state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment for rare conditions that affect the lymphatic and blood vessels of any part of the body. Our endovascular approach to treatment aims to achieve maximum clinical improvement  by using techniques with shorter recovery times, reduced risk of complications and a general reduction in the number of treatments required.

Patients treated in the Vascular Anomalies Program are assisted by a coordinator who schedules appointments with physicians as well as imaging and therapeutic procedures. At our multidisciplinary clinic, patients can be seen simultaneously by physicians in an array of specialties to optimize diagnosis and treatment planning.

Types of Vascular Anomalies treated: 

  • Hemangiomas and other vascular tumors
  • Vascular malformations
    • Venous
    • Capillary (port wine stains)
    • Lymphatic
    • Arteriovenous
    • Combined malformations; e.g. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome

Treatments available through the Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology program include: 

  • Sclerotherapy used to shrink venous malformations, using advanced techniques that maximize therapeutic benefit with a low rate of side effects and complications
  • Sclerotherapy of lymphatic malformations using non-toxic doxycycline
  • Endovenous laser therapy of symptomatic superficial varicosities and extensive lymphatic and venous malformations  
  • Primary endovascular treatment (embolization) of arteriovenous malformations
  • Vascular imaging (Ultrasonography, angiography, venography)
