Default Looking for Information

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this site, and I am looking for some information. Our daughter was just diagnosed with a Vascular Venus Malformation on the hand. It was originally treated as a Hematoma, and we think the VVM came out as a result of her injuring her hand. We are waiting for ultrasound, and MRI.

I would like to know what the chances are that it is just localized to the hand, or do most people with this have it in other areas of the body? Also, she has a lot of puffiness under her eyes, which we have mentioned to the doctor. She has had her eyes checked, and everything looks good, but she has this puffiness all the time. I am just wondering if anyone else has this problem?

How well does sclerotherapy work?

Thank you.
