Abstract

Vascular anomalies are common in the upper extremity, but there continues to be a relative paucity of information about them in the hand and upper limb surgical literature. The wide spectrum of pathology and an inconsistent use of terminology make vascular anomalies susceptible to incorrect diagnosis and as a result to misdirected management. This article aims to provide an update on vascular anomalies relevant to the upper limb, focusing on significant advances in pathogenesis and genetics, classification systems, diagnosis, and treatment.
