Arterial Malformations

Arterial malformations often appear as a combined arterial-venous malformation. The lesion is usually purple and feels "full" beneath the skin. Often warmth and vibrations can be felt from the high blood flow. Arterial malformations can cause pain, bleeding, and ulceration for which treatment is required. Arterial malformations are often presurgically treated with a special radiology procedure to decrease flow in the vessels; this is done by an interventional radiologist, and surgical removal follows.
