A great deal of progress has been made in the management of vascular malformations. Gross disfiguring vascular malformations are no more a mystery or an enigma and there are a number of approaches that can provide satisfactory results. The aim of this symposium is to provide guidelines for the multidisciplinary study and treatment of patients with these conditions. Our invited faculty includes some of the best  known experts from a variety of fields such as interventional radiology, vascular surgery, paediatric surgery and paediatric dermatology. We hope that you will join us in this stimulating event on the 31st October in the Royal Society of Medicine.
