Abstract

The evaluation and treatment of vascular anomalies is rapidly evolving. In recent years, improved imaging, medical therapies, interventional radiology procedures, and technical advances have led to improved functional and aesthetic outcomes with reduced morbidity. With management of vascular anomalies becoming increasingly complex, we wanted to assess the opinions of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery resident trainees regarding education in this evolving subspecialty. The results of our survey show that a significant majority of trainees feel that vascular anomalies are best managed by a multidisciplinary team, consistent with practice in large vascular anomalies centers. While training in this area does not seem to be deficient, it may be helpful to identify those otolaryngology residents who are interested in gaining exposure to patients with vascular anomalies, so that they may seek additional subspecialty experiences to complement their otolaryngology training.
