The vascular elements and blood flow are better diagnosed by angiography . Vascular lesions require treatment when they are symptomatic or causing patient discomfort. A number of therapeutic ways and procedures were proposed for the management of vascular lesions including systemic and intralesional steroids , intralesional sclerosing agents , interferon , laser therapy, embolization , cryotherapy as well as radiation. Ethanolamine oleate is an organic chemical compound as a primary amine and a primary alcohol can cause a dose related inflammatory reaction when introduced inside the tissues leading to fibrosis and reduction of the size affecting lesions.
