    Interdisciplinary Management of Head and Neck Vascular Anomalies: Clinical Presentation, Diagnostic Findings and Minimalinvasive Therapies.
    Eur J Radiol Open 2017 14;4:63-68. Epub 2017 May 14.
    Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, University Medical Center Mannheim, Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University, Theodor-Kutzer-Ufer 1-3, 68167 Mannheim, Germany.
    Objectives: Vascular anomalies are included in the 30 000 rare diseases worldwide affecting less than 5/10 000 people. Depending on their morphology and biological properties, they can cause varied disorders with organ involvement. Almost 60% of vascular anomalies have a predilection for the head and neck region in children. Read More

    Infantile Periocular Hemangioma.
    J Ophthalmic Vis Res 2017 Apr-Jun;12(2):205-211
    Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida, USA.
    Infantile periocular hemangiomas (IPH) are common benign vascular tumors that present early in childhood. They typically show a rapid nonlinear growth pattern a few weeks after birth during a proliferative phase, then continue with an involution phase and may result in serious ocular or systemic complications. Theses tumors may present in a range of small isolated lesions to multiple, diffuse involvements. Read More

    Urinary Excretion of MicroRNA-126 Is a Biomarker for Hemangioma Proliferation.
    Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Jun;139(6):1277e-1284e
    Columbus, Ohio From the Department of Plastic Surgery, the Department of Biomedical Informatics, Center for Biostatistics, the Department of Surgery, and the Divisions of Vascular Surgery and General Surgery, The Ohio State University; and the Department of Pediatrics, the Hemangioma and Vascular Malformation Clinic, and the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Dermatology, Nationwide Children's Hospital.
    Background: Hemangiomas are unique endothelial cell tumors that involute spontaneously, which makes interpreting their response to therapies difficult. The objective of this work was to identify a potential biomarker in the urine of children with infantile hemangiomas that would facilitate testing new therapies.

    Methods: A prospective longitudinal study in children with hemangiomas and age-matched healthy controls was performed to determine whether microRNA-126, which is highly abundant in fetal endothelial cells, was more abundant in the urine of affected children. Read More

    Propranolol therapy for infantile hemangioma: our experience.
    Drug Des Devel Ther 2017 8;11:1401-1408. Epub 2017 May 8.
    Department of Oral-Maxillary Head and Neck, Ninth People's Hospital, College of Stomatology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai Key Laboratory of Stomatology, Shanghai.
    Objective: Hemangiomas are the most common benign vascular tumors of infancy. Although most infantile hemangiomas (IHs) have the ability to involute spontaneously after initial proliferation and resolve without consequence, intervention is required in a subset of IHs, which develop complications resulting in ulceration, bleeding, or aesthetic deformity. The primary treatment for this subset of IHs is pharmacological intervention, and propranolol has become the new first-line treatment for complicated hemangiomas. Read More

    Department of Aesthetic Plastic and Burn Surgery, Provincial Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University, Jinan, Shandong 250021, P.R. China.
    The present study aimed to investigate the effect of laser therapy on the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in the plasma of infants diagnosed with cutaneous hemangioma, in order to identify biomarkers for assessing the clinical efficacy of laser therapy. In total, 109 infants with superficial abdominal hemangioma received laser treatment, of which 74 were diagnosed in the proliferation phase, 20 in the regression phase and 15 in the involution phase. In addition, 10 infants without cutaneous hemangioma were recruited as normal controls. Read More

    J Histochem Cytochem 2017 May 1;65(5):285-294. Epub 2017 Feb 1.
    The State Key Laboratory Breeding Base of Basic Science of Stomatology and Key Laboratory of Oral Biomedicine Ministry of Education (H-FX, J-YZ, J-NW, J-GR, YC, F-QW, WZ, GC, Y-FZ, J-HZ), School and Hospital of Stomatology, Wuhan University, Wuhan, China.
    Accumulating studies have revealed the hypoxic condition and its crucial role in the distinctive progression of infantile hemangioma (IH), the most common benign tumor in infancy. Activating transcription factor 4 (ATF4), an important gene mediating cellular adaptation to various stress signals, could confer a survival advantage for tumor cells under hypoxia and regulate tumor progression. However, the potential role of ATF4 in IH was still unknown. Read More

    The expression of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone axis components in infantile hemangioma tissue and the impact of propranolol treatment.
    Pediatr Res 2017 May 3. Epub 2017 May 3.
    Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Arkansas.
    BackgroundPropranolol's mechanism of action for controlling infantile hemangioma (IH) remains unclear. We hypothesize that this nonselective beta antagonist downregulates renin-angiotensin-aldosterone (RAA) axis components, preventing angiogenic substrate induction of IH.MethodsIH tissue and serum were collected from children with propranolol-treated or -untreated IH during surgery.

    Transcriptional activation of hedgehog pathway components in aggressive hemangioma.
    Exp Dermatol 2017 Mar 31. Epub 2017 Mar 31.
    Department of Pediatric Surgery, Dr. von Hauner Childrens' Hospital, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Munich, Germany.
    Infantile hemangioma is a vascular neoplasm and is one of the most common tumors diagnosed in young children. Although most hemangiomas are harmless and involute spontaneously, some show severe progression, leading to serious complications, such as high output cardiac failure, ulcerations, compression of the trachea or deprivation amblyopia, depending on their size and localization. However, the pathogenesis and cause of hemangioma are largely unknown to date. Read More

    Department of Pediatric Surgery, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710004, P.R. China.
    Approximately 10% of infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common vascular tumors affecting children and are characterized by rapid growth, and can have destructive, disfiguring and even life-threatening consequences. Currently, propranolol is considered to be a safe and effective treatment option for problematic proliferating IHs. Recent studies have also revealed that microRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) play important roles in the regulation of angiogenesis. Read More
