The UCSF Vascular Anomalies Conference was founded in 1991. Patients seen include those with vascular growths such as hemangiomas and other vascular tumors, and vascular malformations including venous, lymphatic, arteriovenous, and mixed malformations. This includes patients with Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome as well as those diagnosed with "lymphangioma," "cavernous hemangioma," "glomangioma," Proteus Syndrome, and other vascular anomalies.
Patients are generally referred by physicians, but occasionally are self-referred. Those patients who have had previous treatments or studies such as biopsies, ultrasound, MRI or MRA, arteriograms, and other studies will need to arrange to have these studies sent prior to their appointment.
