Abstract

The present study investigated the efficacy and safety of digital subtraction angiography‑guided 3% polidocanol foam sclerosing agent, as well as the combination of pingyangmycin and dexamethasone, for the treatment of children with oropharyngeal low‑flow venous malformation. A total of 27 children with 35 lesions with oropharyngeal low‑flow venous malformation were included. The subjects were randomly divided into Groups A (13 patients with 16 lesions, treated with 3% polidocanol foam sclerosing agent) and B (14 patients with 19 lesions, treated with pingyangmycin + dexamethasone), respectively. The clinical efficacies and adverse reactions were analyzed and compared between these two groups. The average number of treatment times for Group A was 2.45±0.6, with an efficacy rate of 87.50%, while the average number of treatment times for Group B was 2.07±0.4, with an efficacy rate of 84.21%. No significant difference was found in the average treatment times or efficacy rates between Groups A and B. In addition, the adverse reaction incidence for Groups A and B were 38.46 and 14.29%, respectively, with statistically significant differences between these two groups. The combination of pingyangmycin and dexamethasone was safe and effective in treating children with oropharyngeal low‑flow venous malformation, with fewer adverse reactions and is worthy of clinical promotion.
