PMID: 36484054.


Children with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome have vascular malformations, varicosities at unusual distribution, and unilateral soft and skeletal tissue hypertrophy of the lower extremity. Corrective surgery of the deformity is necessary to improve gait and wear acceptable footwear. Perioperative pain relief for debulking of the right great toe in a known case of KTS with sciatic hemangioma was achieved with ultrasound-guided sciatic nerve block in an avascular area.
