Research Summary

Hemangiomas are vascular tumors of infancy. Small hemangiomas present a cosmetic problem and may require no therapy, however many hemangiomas can cause severe consequences due to obstruction of a vital organ, congestive heart failure, or bleeding. These lesions require medical management. We are involved in clinical trials and registries for patients with vascular anomalies.
