The treatment of children with blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is highly personalized based on the severity of the condition and the problems associated with it. Because the condition can affect so many different parts of the body, children with BRBNS often see clinicians and specialists from several medical fields.
The Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) at Boston Children's Hospital brings together specialists from across the hospital to take a coordinated approach in caring for children with blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome. Depending on an individual child's needs, this could include:
In addition, the Boston Children’s Hospital specialists work closely with local physicians involved with the care of children with BRBNS who live in other states and countries.
Surgical removal of gastrointestinal blebs can be particularly difficult due to the high risk of bleeding. The surgeons and anesthesiologists who work with the VAC are some of the most experienced in the world in venous malformation removal from the skin and intestine.
