Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A preterm infant presented with high-output cardiac failure. Color Doppler imaging of the liver revealed a large hepatic hemangioma. Pulsed-wave Doppler of the proximal aorta was used to monitor noninvasively the reduction in flow through the arteriovenous malformation in response to steroid therapy. The hemangioma resolved completely by 7 weeks of age.
