Treatment Strategy on Neonatal and Infant CVMs

  • Cristóbal Miguel Papendicek
  • Miguel Angel Amore


The classification of vascular anomalies by J. B. Mulliken in 1989 and the CVM identification according to ISSVA–Hamburg (truncular and extratruncular CVM) and ISSVA (1996) (low- and fast-flow CVMs) have enabled the unification of criteria or basic consensus on the diagnostic methodology and therapeutic technical principles.
