Medical Management of Vascular Anomalies.

Curr Treat Options Pediatr 2018 Jun 27;4(2):221-236. Epub 2018 Apr 27.

Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Department of Surgery, Seattle Children's Hospital and Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, Washington, United States.

Purpose Of Review: This chapter will summarize the most recent literature regarding the current state of medical treatment for vascular anomalies.

Recent Findings: Research into the biology of these anomalies has strengthened our understanding of each anomaly and has helped to pave the way for more tailored treatment options involving molecular and/or genetic targets.

Summary: While there is still a role for surgical intervention, medical therapies that target the etiology of vascular anomalies may represent an alternative or adjunctive approach in the management of these lesions. Read More

Australas J Dermatol 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Division of Oncology, Department of Pediatric Surgery, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Recently, several studies have reported their experience in using oral atenolol in patients with infantile haemangioma (IH), especially as an alternative to propranolol, but the efficacy and safety of oral atenolol has not been evaluated. We searched PubMed (Medline), Central, Embase, Web of Science and EBSCOhost (until May 2018) for the eligible studies reporting more than 10 IH patients who were treated with oral atenolol with detailed original data, including outcomes, regimens and adverse events (AEs). The data was standardised and analysed by using R software with meta-package. Read More

Repurposing propranolol as an antitumor agent in von Hippel-Lindau disease.

Authors:

J Neurosurg 2018 Oct 1:1-9. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

OBJECTIVEVon Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a tumor predisposition syndrome characterized by CNS hemangioblastomas (HBs) and clear cell renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) due to hypoxia-inducible factor activation (pseudohypoxia). Because of the lack of effective medical therapies for VHL, HBs and RCCs account for significant morbidity and mortality, ultimately necessitating numerous neurological and renal surgeries. Propranolol is an FDA-approved pan-beta adrenergic antagonist with antitumor effects against infantile hemangiomas (IHs) and possibly VHL HBs. Read More

Department of Imaging, IRCCS Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, Rome, Italy.

Proper nomenclature is a major obstacle in understanding and managing vascular anomalies. Often the same term is used for totally different types of lesions or, conversely, the same lesion may be labeled with different terms. Although in recent times there has been a greater understanding of the problems concerning vascular anomalies, episodes of improper use of terminology still remain. Read More

Magnetic Detection & Imaging, University of Twente, Drienerlolaan 5, 7522 NB, Enschede, Netherlands.

Purpose: To compare diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM), and tri-exponential models of the diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal for the characterization of renal lesions in relationship to histopathological findings.

Methods: Sixteen patients planned to undergo nephrectomy for kidney tumour were scanned before surgery at 3 T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with T-weighted imaging, DTI and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) using ten b-values. DTI parameters (mean diffusivity [MD] and fractional anisotropy [FA]) were obtained by iterative weighted linear least squared fitting of the DTI data and bi-, and tri-exponential fit parameters (D, fand D, ff) using a nonlinear fit of the multiple b-value DWI data.
