Vascular anomalies are encountered in the daily practice of many medical and surgical disciplines, but commonly occur in the head and neck. These disorders of blood vessel development - including hemangiomas and vascular malformations - can be challenging as treatment approaches vary depending on the lesion's clinical characteristics, the disciplines involved, and the experience of the physician.

Head and Neck Vascular Anomalies: A Practical Case-Based Approach offers a focused, multidisciplinary guide to the management of simple and complex vascular lesions based on type and location, with specific treatment suggestions using clinical and scientific evidence. With contributed chapters from international leaders in the field, this text provides consistent and straightforward techniques to treating both frequently encountered as well as less common vascular anomalies.

Initial steps for diagnosis, followed by a recommended treatment approach are illustrated with photographs, imaging, and demonstrations of surgical or alternative therapies. This text is based on current literature and aims to present a timeless algorithm for each lesion type.

Dr. Richter and Dr. Suen have more than 40 years combined experience in treating these lesions. Their Vascular Anomalies Center at Arkansas Children's Hospital was one of the earliest treatment centers for these disorders and is now world-renowned for its clinical expertise and multidisciplinary approach.

Their case-based approach is an efficient resource for physicians in a variety of specialties. With the increasing number of vascular anomaly centers emerging, along with the recent advancements in the field, Head and Neck Vascular Anomalies: A Practical Case-Based Approach is the ideal resource for physicians.

From the Preface
"We designed 'Head and Neck Vascular Anomalies: A Practical Case-Based Approach' with the goal to provide hands-on, step-by-step, management algorithms for specific vascular anomalies of the head and neck encountered in daily practice. This is a condensed, multidisciplinary, practical guide for both simple and complex lesions. Our colleagues in otolaryngology, dermatology, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, oncology, and interventional radiology have all contributed amazing cases with clinical detail, scientific evidence, and therapeutic options.

In each chapter, the initial steps to diagnose a vascular lesion are followed by a recommended treatment in a case-based format with photographs, radiographic imaging, and alternative therapies. All cases are based upon current literature with the aim to give state-of-the-art information on the majority of head and neck vascular anomalies. Medical, radiographic, and surgical techniques for frequently encountered and more difficult vascular anomalies are described."
