The type of treatment required for combined malformations depends upon the channels involved.
All patients require evaluation by a wide range of specialists, and treatment strategies require close interdisciplinary collaboration.
Extremity lesions are often treated with supportive approaches such as limb elevation and the use of compression garments.
Lesions that are complex may require surgical excision, sclerotherapy, embolization, and/or an overall treatment strategy that combines a variety of approaches used over time.
For more information on these approaches, refer to the information on capillary, venous, lymphatic, and arteriovenous malformations.
