It is important to have all the options given to you (risks and benefits of each) so you can make the best my opinion. Propanolol has shown great results in some cases, but it is a new treatment for hemangiomas. Most of the time a child is admitted for observation when first receiving propanolol as a precaution. I hope other UK parents can share their experiences. I would also encourage you to email the "ask the experts" on the VBF home page
