Vascular Malformations

There are many differences between hemangiomas and vascular malformations. Hemangiomas, made up of capillaries, tend to grow throughout the first year of life and then regress. Vascular malformations are made up of arteries, veins, or lymphatic channels depending on the type of malformation. Vascular malformations also tend to grow throughout life and usually will require some type of intervention.
