Abstract

Systemic vascular malformations are a rare cause of congestive heart failure in the infant and newborn infant. Clinical diagnosis is often problematic. Accordingly, this study presents the clinical, radiographic, ultrasound imaging, pulsed and color Doppler features of systemic vascular malformations in six infants. In all cases, color Doppler provided vital information regarding size, location, source of feeding arteries and venous drainage essential for appropriate management of these patients. Color flow Doppler ultrasonography is an accurate and sensitive modality for detecting and evaluating vascular malformations.
