Vascular Malformation Treatment
Vascular malformations are birthmarks or growths composed of blood vessels that can cause functional or cosmetic problems. They may be caused by hormonal changes during puberty and pregnancy, and often result from blood accumulating in poorly formed veins or lymphatic channels. Vascular malformations are typically present at birth but can become apparent later in life. This happens as blood flow increases through abnormal connections between arteries and veins.
