Default Cavernous hemangioma. Microwave destruction.

Good afternoon. Me and my youngest daughter from Russia.
Girl age 8 months. At 2 months there was a hemangioma right parotid region.
Doctor ourselves in the children's hospital in Moscow.
The ultrasound study of hemangioma 11/29/1910: In the right parotid region marked hemangioma 3.4 * 4.1 * 3.5cm.
Volume = 25.5sm3. The structure of the medium echogenicity. Uniform, with smooth precise contours. In the DRC a large number of vessels. Bloodstream of high intensity. Arterial blood flow Vs28-85cm / sec. By hemangioma fit several large vessels. Venous blood flow 8.5-22cm / sec. Dominated by arterial vessels. Hemangioma supply blood to the pool the external carotid artery. Trunk somewhat convoluted NSA, 4 mm in diameter. Data on the intracerebral distribution is not revealed.
12/02/1910 implemented microwave destruction of hemangioma. Assigned to a course of Prednisolone 5mg per 1 kg of the body, the course of 42 days every other day.
01/24/1911 ultrasound hemangiomas. In the right parotid region marked Hemangioma 3.5 * 3.5 * 2.8sm. Volume = 17.9sm3. The structure of the medium echogenicity, homogeneous with clear margins. In the DRC a large number of vessels. Bloodstream of high intensity. Arterial blood flow Vs13-68cm / sec. By hemangioma fit several large vessels. Venous blood flow 9-14cm / sec.
01/26/1911 making a second microwave destruction of hemangiomas. Appointed to a second course (after break in 10 days) Prednisolone 5mg to 1 kg of body rate of 42 days through the day and Viferon 150000ED - 2 times a day.
Readmission is scheduled for March 28, 2011.
Offer to embolize vessels for fear of "withdrawal" of prednisolone and a consequence of this - the growth of hemangioma.
But, as I know, this type of treatment used in adults because high risk for serious complications. Plus, the effectiveness of these operations is questionable.

Advise what is possible to conduct a survey, and what treatment to my child with minimum risk to health.
Sincerely, Tatyana.

Hi and welcome!

I know that you have written to a couple of doctors here, but have you communicated with Olga? She is our Russian coordinator and she might be able to hook you up with another physician there.

If you have not talked to Olga, let me know and I'll send her your story, with your permission.

Missy

PS.... What a beautiful baby!!!
