Submit a Patient Case for Future Discussions

This webinar discusses when is it appropriate for an interventionalist to treat Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (PubMed) (KTS). KTS is a rare congenital vascular disorder in which a limb may be affected by port wine stains (red-purple birthmarks involving blood vessels), varicose veins, and/or too much bone and soft tissue growth. The limb may be larger, longer, and/or warmer than normal. The cause of KTS is unknown.

A moderated discussion of several patient case presentations will include a multidisciplinary team of medical experts and specially selected expert panelists. These specialists will ask questions and direct the discussions of various surgical treatment strategies and perspectives regarding treatment for KTS. The in-depth discussions will include input and questions from the audience.

Learning Objectives

  • To increase awareness of and advocate for pediatric patients with vascular anomalies
  • To inderstand how to establish proper diagnosis and treatment of pediatric vascular anomalies
  • To disseminate education on the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric vascular anomalies
  • To create an international forum for debate, discussion, and dialog on approaches for treating pediatric patients with vascular anomalies

The live webinar allows interactive exchanges between participants and expert panelists as they address fundamentals of basic techniques and strategies in treating venous malformations. A global virtual audience will be able to interact live via chat, encouraging discussion and debate. Polls will ask for your thoughts on diagnoses and various treatment options.
