Color doppler ultrasound study of glomuvenous malformations with its clinical and histologic correlations
MetadataShow full item record
Glomuvenous malformations are hamartomatous lesions characterized by the presence of glomus cells in the vascular smooth muscle. We present the clinical and color Doppler ultrasound features of a series of 13 cases of histologically confirmed glomuvenous malformations. In all cases, the ultrasound study revealed moderately delimited superficial dermal and hypodermal pseudonodutar structures of mixed echogenicity, with hypoechoic and heterogeneous areas and anechoic, pseudocystic tubular and lacunar zones. Arterial and venous vessels, mainly with a low flow (<= 15 cm/s) were observed in 85% of patients, but no arteriovenous shunts were present. Deeper structures were not affected and no phleboliths were detected. The clinical and ultrasound findings could facilitate diagnosis, surgical planning, and noninvasive follow-up in these tumors.

Salinas, Vicente; Aguilar, Claudio; Espinoza González, Rodrigo; Lund Plantat, Fernando; Mujica Fernández, Nicolás (Elsevier, 2017)Ultrasound has long been used as a non-destructive tool to test for the brittle fracture of materials. Could it be used as a similar tool to test for ductile failure? As a first step towards answering this question, we ...
