SUCCESS AND FAILURE WITH INTRALESIONAL 3% SODIUM TETRADECYL SULFATE SCLEROSING AGENT IN TWO CASES OF INTRAORAL HEMANGIOMAAbstract
Vascular malformations are one of the most common lesions of the oral cavity. The lesion may be a congenital malformation observed in neonates or arteriovenous malformation observed in adults. The treatment of these lesions includes surgical excision, cryotherapy, selective embolization and treatment with intralesional sclerosing agents. We present two cases of benign oral vascular lesions treated with intralesional injection of 30mg/ml sodium tetradecyl sulfate. One lesion virtually disappeared after one session of sclerotherapy, leaving a fibrotic lesion. No side effects were observed. The other lesion resulted in a severe inflammatory response including pain, swelling and surface ulceration up to more than 2 weeks. Sclerotherapy with sodium tetradecyl sulfate is effective in treating smaller benign oral vascular lesions, and the use of the sodium tetradecyl sulfate provides alternative or support for surgical methods. Larger lesions in critical anatomical areas may not be the best choice for treatment with Sclerosing agents. This paper presents the success and failure of vascular lesions treated with sclerosing agent.
