Abstract

This article describes the treatment of a painful ulcerating congenital arteriovenous malformation in the hand of a 39-year-old woman. Preoperative transcatheter embolotherapy was used to diminish vascularity and engorgement. Operative treatment consisted of a resection of angiomatous material and coverage with a pedicle flap. Preoperative transcatheter embolization of small feeder vessels may offer some advantage over the operative approach alone in treating congenital arteriovenous malformations of the hand.
