Vascular Malformations Treatment

Steps Involved in IVF:

Procedure Description

Vascular malformations are congenital anomalies of the vascular system that can affect any part of the body. These malformations are a collection of abnormally formed blood vessels, and they can cause a range of symptoms such as pain, swelling, or skin discoloration. They may also result in functional impairment depending on their location. Treatment options typically include surgical removal, laser therapy, and sclerotherapy, where a solution is injected to shrink the blood vessels.

The need for treatment often depends on the severity of the condition and the associated symptoms. While some vascular malformations are merely cosmetic issues, others can cause serious health complications, like bleeding or ulceration. When conventional treatments fail to manage the symptoms or when the malformations pose a risk to health, surgical intervention becomes necessary.

Consulting a qualified healthcare professional is crucial for a proper diagnosis and to discuss various treatment options. Often, a multidisciplinary approach that includes radiologists, vascular surgeons, and dermatologists is adopted to treat complex vascular malformations effectively.

Procedure Duration

The duration of the procedure for treating vascular malformations varies significantly based on the complexity of the condition, the chosen treatment method, and the healthcare facility's capabilities. Surgical removal could take anywhere from one to several hours, depending on the extent of the malformation and its location. Recovery from surgery may require hospitalization for a few days followed by weeks of at-home recovery.

For non-surgical treatments like laser therapy and sclerotherapy, the procedures are usually quicker, often completed within 30 minutes to an hour. These treatments may require multiple sessions for optimal results. Recovery time is generally shorter, with patients usually able to resume normal activities within a day or two.

The duration and recovery time may also vary from one patient to another depending on their overall health, age, and other medical conditions, if any. Therefore, it is important to consult healthcare professionals for a customized treatment plan.


  • Cost Savings: Treatment for vascular malformations can be expensive in some countries. Opting for medical tourism can substantially reduce healthcare costs.
  • Expertise and Specialization: Some international hospitals are renowned for their specialized vascular units, with healthcare professionals skilled in treating complex vascular malformations.
  • Advanced Technology: Medical facilities in certain countries boast state-of-the-art technology for diagnosis and treatment, ensuring more effective and minimally invasive procedures.

Potential Destinations

  • India: Known for highly qualified specialists and cost-effective healthcare.
  • South Korea: Renowned for its advanced medical technology and specialized medical staff.
  • Germany: Famous for high-quality healthcare services and a multidisciplinary approach to vascular conditions.

Risks & Considerations

  • Quality of Care: Not all international facilities offer the same level of healthcare services. Conduct thorough research before choosing a location.
  • Language Barrier: Communication could be a potential issue. Make sure there are interpreters or bilingual staff.
  • Legal Protections: Understanding your legal rights in case of medical malpractice can be complex when receiving treatment abroad.

How to Choose the Right Doctor and Hospital

  • Accreditations and Certifications: Always check for international healthcare accreditations and the healthcare providers' certifications.
  • Reviews and Testimonials: Look for reviews from previous patients who have undergone the same procedure.
  • Consult Multiple Sources: Don't rely solely on the hospital's promotional material. Seek unbiased opinions and consult trusted sources.

Frequently Asked Questions

What actually happens during hyperstimulation of the ovaries?

The patient will take injectable FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) for eight to eleven days, depending on how long the follicles take to mature. This hormone is produced naturally in a woman’s body causing one egg to develop per cycle. Taking the injectable FSH causes several follicles to develop at once, at approximately the same rate. The development is monitored with vaginal ultrasounds and following the patient’s levels of estradiol and progesterone. FSH brand names include Repronex, Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F and Bravelle. The patient injects herself daily.

What happens during egg retrieval?

When the follicles have developed enough to be harvested, the patient attends an appointment  where she is anesthetized and prepared for the procedure. Next, the doctor uses an ultrasound probe to guide a needle through the vaginal wall and into the follicle of the ovary. The thin needle draws the follicle fluid, which is then examined by an embryologist to find the eggs. The whole process takes about 20 minutes.

What happens to the eggs?

In the next step, the harvested eggs are then fertilized. If the sperm from the potential father, or in some cases, anonymous donor, has normal functionality, the eggs and sperm are placed together in a dish with a nutrient fluid, then incubated overnight to fertilize normally. If the sperm functionality is suboptimal, an embryologist uses Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection to inject a single sperm into a single egg with an extremely precise glass needle.  Once fertilization is complete, the embryos are assessed and prepared to be transferred to the patient’s uterus.

How are the embryos transferred back to the uterus?

The doctor and the patient will discuss the number of embryos to be transferred. The number of successfully fertilized eggs usually determines the number of eggs to be placed in the uterus. Embryos are transferred to the uterus with transabdominal ultrasound guidance. This process does not require anesthesia, but it can cause minor cervical or uterine discomfort. Following transfer, the patient is advised to take at least one days bed rest and two or three additional days of rest, then 10 to 12 days later, two pregnancy tests are scheduled to confirm success. Once two positive tests are completed, an obstetrical ultrasound is ordered to show the sac, fetal pole, yolk sac and fetal heart rate.


Built into this technology there is a microscope with a powerful camera that allows the uninterrupted monitoring of the embryo during its first hours of life. In this way, we can keep a close eye on the embryo, from the moment when the oocyte is inseminated and begins to divide into smaller and smaller cells, until it can be transferred to the uterus.

Orthopedics Stem Cell


Research on mesenchymal stem cells regenerative properties in knee osteoarthritis. In these studies, researchers suggest that Stem Cell Therapy has the potential to regenerate lost cartilage, stop and reverse cartilage degeneration, provide pain relief, and improve patient mobility.


Stem Cell Therapy as an Alternative to Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Replacement Surgery. Stem cell therapy may offer an excellent alternative for patients looking to avoid shoulder joint replacement surgery, as well as many other surgical treatments for shoulder pain.


If you suffer from chronic or acute ankle pain or instability due to arthritis, cartilage loss, ligament strain or tear, or tendon damage, then you may benefit from non-surgical stem cell treatments or stem cell-enhanced surgery.

Back Pain

Patients now have a minimally invasive option. Stem cell therapy for back pain and disc herniations can potentially repair the damaged disc or facet joint, restore function, rehydrate the disc, and ultimately alleviate chronic pain.

Anti-Aging Stem Cell

Hair Loss

Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy have been shown to be most effective for: Those in the early stages of hair loss, patients who are not viable candidates for surgery and women who prefer to avoid hair surgery.

Facial Anti-Aging

Aesthetic Anti-Aging. The Aesthetic Stem Cell Localized Treatment is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure to enhance the appearance of aging skin and hair restoration. This all-natural technique combines dermal injections of bone marrow or adipose tissue derived stem cells and growth factors.

Fertility Stem Cell

Endometrial PRP

The stem cells used for treatment of a thin endometrium include mesenchymal stem cells. In addition, successful repair of the endometrium in pregnancy with stem cells has been reported previously.

Low Ovarian Reserve (PRP)

The treatment uses PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma), which with stem cell therapy is the novel therapeutic approach for restoring the quality of the ovarian reserve.Your PRP will contain a physiologic balance of platelets, growth factors and white blood cells tailored specifically for you.
