Hi Mamalamb,

Contacted Patricia Burrows and got a response really quick (see below). Port wine stain can be treated without effecting the venous anomalies ;D

No, normally the PWS can be treated without any effect on the venous anomalies.

Thanks for the quick response!
I am not afraid for ulceration but more that the laser treatment (to remove the PWSs) in combination with the existing KTW syndrome will cause problems. Do you mean that normally that should not be a problem (remove PWSs while KTW syndrome is present as well)?
The benefit (at least for me) of the laser therapy is to remove the PWSs test area on one leg showed good results after 1 treatment
