Vascular Malformation Center

Vascular and lymphatic malformations are caused by abnormal growth of arteries, veins, and possibly lymphatic vessels that may lead to localized swelling, pain, difficulty using the limb in which they grow, and erosion of adjacent tissues. In rare cases, arteriovenous malformations can lead to high output cardiac failure. Most vascular and lymphatic lesions are a result of abnormal development of vessels from birth although trauma can result in the development of new lesions. Arteriovenous fistulas in the lung can result in small clots passing through the vascular system which puts patients at risk for strokes and arterial blockages.

Interventional Radiologists are experienced in equipment and medications that provide optimal treatments to minimize discomfort, maximize recovery and results without making an incision.
