Vascular Anomalies Special Interest Group
The Vascular Anomalies Special Interest Group's (SIG) mission is to improve the care of children and young adults with vascular anomalies through multicenter collaborative research.
- Current continued education to ASPHO membership in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with vascular anomalies
- Multicenter collaboration to establish standards of practice for patients with vascular anomalies
- Development of collaborative research projects such as hypotheses-generating initiatives (e.g., registries, retrospective analyses), treatment protocols, and prospective observational and interventional studies
- Utilizing our experience developing consortia for rare disease research to create registries to collect natural history and outcomes data, design standards of practice and treatment protocols, and collaborate with scientists to develop biomarkers, animal models, and improved understanding of biology that will hopefully emerge into the development of prospective clinical trials.
