Abstract

Pulse laser treatment is useful for aesthetic improvement in children with capillary vascular malformation and residual superficial haemangiomas. However, pulse laser treatment is painful, and repeated procedures are usually required to achieve a satisfactory clinical result. Evidence shows that analgesia in children undergoing pulse laser treatment may vary from general anaesthesia to no treatment at all. This report describes our institutional experience with deep sedation in children with capillary vascular malformation, undergoing laser pulse treatment.
