[Skeletal hemangiomas]. Orthopade. 2017 Apr 11;: Authors: Rickert M, Meurer A Abstract Hemangiomas are benign tumors, which are mainly composed of neoplastic blood vessels. The exact pathogenesis is still unclear. They are the most common benign spinal tumors and also occur less commonly in the bones of the extremities. Hemangiomas are often clinically asymptomatic and are diagnosed as incidental findings. Women are affected more frequently than men (2:1). The X‑ray and computed tomography (CT) diagnostics typically demonstrate the classical honeycombing or vertically orientated lucencies separated by thickened cancellous bone in the affected skeletal section. Vertebral hemangiomas are hyperintense in both T1 and T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The treatment of vertebral hemangiomas ranges from irradiation, embolization and vertebroplasty to operative decompression, resection of the tumor and instrumented stabilization. In the long bones intralesional curettage and bone grafting with additive osteosynthesis is the main treatment modality. The prognosis for osseous hemangiomas is good.

This article is structured as a practical review offering a systematic diagnostic approach to focal calvarial lesions, broadly organized into four categories: (1) pseudolesions: arachnoid granulations, meningo-/encephaloceles, vascular canals, frontal hyperostosis, parietal thinning, parietal foramina, and sinus pericrani; (2) lytic: fibrous dysplasia, epidermal inclusion and dermoid cysts, eosinophilic granuloma, hemangioma, aneurysmal bone cyst, giant cell tumor, metastasis, and myeloma; (3) sclerotic: osteomas, osteosarcoma, and metastasis; (4) transdiploic: meningioma, hemangiopericytoma, lympho ma, and metastasi...
In this study, thirty deep IHs were included, and a fractional 2940nm laser was applied with 2-weeks intervals. Topical timolol maleate 0.5% was applied under occlusion for 30 minutes four times/day for 24 weeks. The plasma concentration of timolol maleate was monitored for 0.5h after the first treatment. The HAS scores and the depth, lateral diameter, vertical diameter of hemangiomas were evaluated before treatment, at 8 weeks and 24 weeks of treatment, and at 4 weeks after treatment.Results: Twenty-three patients (76.7%) demonstrated excellent regression, 4(13.3%) showed good response, and 3(10%) experienced moder...
CONCLUSION: Natural history and post-operative follow-up for patients with spinal intradural capillary hemangioma are uncertain. This is the sole case to have not recurred at 12 months which underwent gross total resection and had a high proliferative index. . PMID: 32049625 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
