Abstract

Purpose To report the results of a survey of the members of the American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) regarding the treatment of periocular capillary hemangiomas. Methods A survey was delivered to the 600 members of AAPOS. Surveys were returned via facsimile. Results were collected in a computerized spreadsheet and then tabulated and analyzed. Results Of the 600 AAPOS members, 225 responded to the survey. The results showed that intralesional steroid injection is the most commonly used treatment modality for periorbital capillary hemangiomas. Oral steroids and excision were also commonly used in the treatment of these lesions. Conclusions Further controlled studies are needed to determine which treatment modality offers the most benefit and least risk. More standardization based on these studies is necessary to improve treatment of periocular capillary hemangiomas.
