Venous Malformations

Venous malformations may affect the skin, muscle, and bone. They often appear as soft, easily compressive masses that have a blue tint. They often enlarge when placed in a dependent position. As the child grows, the malformation grows with them. The venous malformation often can be presurgically treated with a special radiology procedure that decreases the venous flow; this is done by an interventional radiologist. Surgery is another option for certain venous malformations.
