Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital (present at birth) vascular anomaly that results in your child having a large number of abnormal blood vessels.
How Boston Children's Hospital approaches Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome
The Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) at Boston Children's specializes in innovative, family-centered care for children with KTS. From your first visit, you’ll work with a team of professionals who are committed to supporting all your family’s physical and psychosocial needs.
Children with KTS sometimes have legs that are so large as to be debilitating, forcing them to use a wheelchair. Surgeons at Boston Children's are leading the charge in removing the extra tissue that grows as a result of KTS. In what's called a debulking procedure, our surgeons remove a great deal of the extra tissue, which can allow your child to regain function of her leg. Read more about our treatment.
