Innovations in Vascular Anomalies: How a Multidisciplinary Disease Approach can Change the Outcome for Rare Disease

Patients with vascular anomalies have conditions of the veins, arteries and the lymphatic system that can be classified as tumors (benign and malignant) and vascular malformations (congenital anomalies of the vasculature). These conditions, which can range in complexity, can cause pronounced visible deformities and disfigurement, impede critical organ functions such as swallowing or breathing, or cause severe pain interfering with one’s quality of life. It has become clear that patients with more complex forms of vascular anomalies benefit from multidisciplinary collaboration among various specialists from numerous disciplines, including cardiology, dermatology, genetics, hematology, interventional radiology, oncology, pathology, pulmonology, and surgery.

This webinar provides an overview of how comprehensive, multidisciplinary care can benefit patients with these complex conditions as well as updates on Diagnosis, Phenotype/Genotype Correlation of Disease, Innovative Interventional Therapeutics options and Translational Research underway that can lead to New Drug Development.
