Venous Malformation: Truncular Form



Subtyping of venous malformation (VM) into truncular and extra-truncular form derives from the embryological background in Hamburg classification of CVM (see Chap.  9). In the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) classification, it is classified as “vascular anomaly of major named vessels” which is referred to “truncular form” malformations [1].
