Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Congenital hemangiomas (CHs) are rare, benign vascular tumors that are present at birth. They are divided into 3 major subtypes: rapidly involuting CHs, partially involuting CHs, and noninvoluting CHs (NICHs). There is a paucity of data in the literature regarding NICH and its management. Most symptomatic patients with NICH are managed with surgery. However, endovascular embolization, direct percutaneous sclerotherapy, or laser treatment can be used on a case-by-case basis. In this report, 3 cases with peripheral symptomatic NICH treated with percutaneous cryoablation are presented.
