Aim: The aim of this paper to summarize the clinical characteristics of unfavorable results occurred following an unsuitable surgical, endovascular or dermal treatment for vascular anomalies.
Methods: Seventeen patients with vascular anomalies who had unintentional results following an intervention that was not consistent with the one suggested by a local academic multidisciplinary team were enrolled. The medical records of all patients were retrospectively examined.
Results: Venous malformation was the most frequent lesion in the patients (41.2%). More than half of the patients (52.9%) had an inadequate treatment as a concomitant of lack of a correct diagnosis. The most frequently occurred unfavorable result was the progression of the disease, the recurrence of the lesions, and clinical deterioration (64.7%).
Conclusion: The physicians who participating in the management of vascular anomalies should have a higher order of qualification than an average degree. Also, a multidisciplinary approach for the management of these anomalies is recommended.
