Diffusion-Weighted Imaging Prior to Percutaneous Sclerotherapy of Venous Malformations-Proof of Concept Study for Prediction of Clinical Outcome.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jun 9;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Clinic for Radiology, University of Muenster and University Hospital of Muenster, 48149 Muenster, Germany.

Prediction of response to percutaneous sclerotherapy in patients with venous malformations (VM) is currently not possible with baseline clinical or imaging characteristics. This prospective single-center study aimed to predict treatment outcome of percutaneous sclerotherapy as measured by quality of life (QoL) by using radiomic analysis of diffusion-weighted (dw) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before and after first percutaneous sclerotherapy. In all patients ( = 16) pre-interventional (PRE-) and delta (DELTA-) radiomic features (RF) were extracted from dw-MRI before and after first percutaneous sclerotherapy with ethanol gel or polidocanol foam, while QoL was assessed using the Toronto Extremity Salvage Score (TESS) and the 36-Item Short Form Survey (SF-36) health questionnaire.

[Neonatal sepsis by Citrobacter Freundii as a debut of cystic lymphatic malformation].

Andes Pediatr 2022 Apr;93(2):265-269

Hospital Universitario Politecnic La Fe, Valencia, España.

Cystic lymphatic malformation (CLM) is a rare and benign entity caused by alterations in the embryological development of lymphatic structures. Its typical location is in the head and neck, although it has also been described at the abdominal level. It may not be evident in the first stages of life and its first manifestation may be a complication such as abdominal distension, hemorrhage, or sepsis, which may put the patient's life at risk.

Axial ablation versus terminal interruption of the reflux source (AAVTIRS): a randomised controlled trial.

Trials 2022 Jun 10;23(1):483. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

University Hospital Galway, Galway, Ireland.

Background: Treatment of superficial venous reflux has been shown to improve ulcer healing time and reduce the risk of ulcer recurrence. Terminal ablation of the reflux source (TIRS) is an alternative to formal endovenous ablation or surgery which can be performed by injecting sclerosant foam into the peri-ulcer plexus of the veins. TIRS has been shown to be successful and in our experience is the option preferred by many patients, when offered as an alternative to axial ablation (AA). Read More

Unité de Dermatologie Pédiatrique et Centre de Référence des Maladies Rares de la Peau d'Origine Génétique, Hôpital Pellegrin-Enfants, CHU de Bordeaux, Bordeaux cedex, France.

Depending on impairment, treatment of vascular anomalies is decided on a case-by-case basis in pluridisciplinary consultations. Interventional treatments, especially surgery and sclerotherapy, are usually partially efficient and management of patients with vascular anomalies increasingly involves the use of medical drugs. The most common vascular tumor is infantile hemangioma where first-line medical treatment, when necessary, is propranolol. Read More

A Rare Case of Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia: A Case Report.

Cureus 2022 Apr 27;14(4):e24517. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Internal Medicine, Hayatabad Medical Complex Peshawar, Peshawar, PAK.

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, is a very rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder that leads to abnormal blood vessel formation in the skin, mucus membranes (called telangiectasia), and organs such as the lung, liver, and brain. It occurs due to a mutation in one of the , , and  genes, which code for the formation of blood vessels. The most common symptom is recurring nosebleed (epistaxis; due to rupture of nasal mucosal telangiectasia), which begins in childhood and affects about 90-95% of people with HHT. Read More

Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Toronto General Hospital-University Health Network/University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Division of General Surgery, Toronto General Hospital-University Health Network/University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This study assessed the safety profile of high-volume (>10 mL) 3% sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS) sclerotherapy for the treatment of renal cysts in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. A total of 211 sclerotherapy treatments were performed in 169 patients over a 5-year period, with a comparison of 2 patient cohorts based on the STS volumes used. The first cohort (n = 112) received a high volume (greater than 10 mL) of STS, and the second cohort (n = 57) received a low volume (less than 10 mL). Read More

J Oral Pathol Med 2022 May 24. Epub 2022 May 24.

Center for Vascular Anomalies, Division of Plastic Surgery, VASCERN VASCA European Reference Centre, Saint Luc University Hospital, Brussels, Belgium.

Vascular Anomalies are a heterogenous group of vascular lesions that can be divided, according to the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies Classification, into two main groups : Vascular Tumors and Vascular Malformations. Vascular Malformations can be further subdivided into slow-flow and fast-flow malformations. This clinical and radiological classification allows for a better understanding of vascular anomalies and aims to offer a more precise final diagnosis. Read More
