Embolotherapy for Hemangiomas

Embolization is commonly mentioned for hemangiomas, but only rarely required. Embolization should be considered if there are significant associated complications (e.g. heart failure due to significant arteriovenous shunt or bleeding).  Embolization may be particularly useful in Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma (KHE) rather than infantile hemangioma. Embolization can also be used in selected intramuscular and non-involuting congenital hemangiomas.
