There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
At Boston Children's Hospital, we’re known for our science-driven approach. In fact, we’re home to the world's most extensive pediatric hospital research enterprise; and we partner with elite health care and biotech organizations around the globe.
Researchers and clinicians in our Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) conduct research that may lead to the development of new, more effective therapies and perhaps, ultimately, ways to prevent FAVA and other anomalies. Members of our team published the first paper that defined FAVA as a unique vascular anomaly, and recently identified mutations in a gene called PIK3CA in tissues from several patients with FAVA. Also, in a recent retrospective review study, VAC clinicians determined that image-guided percutaneous cryoablation (a procedure where a clinician partially freezes a FAVA lesion) is an effective and safe option for controlling pain associated with FAVA.
The VAC has generated an extensive database on vascular anomalies, including FAVA. As our database grows, it will help shine more light on the causes, treatments, and long-term outcomes of FAVA and other vascular anomalies.
