Many of us would hardly get an idea as to why the cystic hygroma is being caused in our humans. The reasons could be several while we really pay less attention until we get to the maximum adverse situations. This can be mainly considered for treatment only in people who are asymptomatic. The treatment for Cystic hygroma in medical terms, starts with monitoring the sclerosing agents that are present in us. There are various agents we hardly have an idea about. Just to name them here, OK-432- this belongs to the stream of Streptococcus pyogenes.
We also have the pure ethanol, bleomycin, doxycycline and sodium tetradecyl sulfate. Knowing on how each of these agents and how they impact our body when they start acting on our body is quite important. In general people prefer those drugs that are approved by FDS US. But the OK-432 though not approved attains major demand due to the high success rate of it curing the CH. Inflammatory responsiveness on the inactive bacteria is what is done by this agent leading to the fibrosis of the cystic hygroma.
This OK-432 drug is mainly considered to be applied on those who have the unilocular cysts. You need not have to worry about the availability of this agent as it can be made available in US by simple protocol. But one interesting thing about this agent is that it does not work well with small cysts while it gives its best on the big cysts of cystic hygroma. The doctors use the aspiration process before actually injecting this agent into the body. Some have the assumption and belief that the aspiration does work more than the agent itself.
Next to the OK-432 is the Bleomycin which is consider very rarely by the doctors as it has the toxicity by name pulmonary fibrosis. As cystic hygroma is known to be the benign diseases people generally look for the alternative treatments that are less toxic in nature. While nearly 83% of 70 people who have been provided treatment with this agent have experience good results there are also nearly 3 people who died with the adverse impact of the same drug. There are various studies done on this agent which resulted in both positive and negative impact.
Next in the list of the sclerosing agents is the alcohol otherwise the absolute alcohol. This has resulted in success for those patients who have the vascular malformations. But it is not just the simple injection that is recommended. You should do the injection under the CT guidance that is intended to provide resolution in nearly 7 of every 8 patients that are being given this agent. Also the results that are produced are purely without any complications.
Interferon alfa-2a is the best treatment that can be considered for the hemangiomas. The use of this agent has been proposed for the lymphangiomas. However the efficacy of this agent though has been tried on many patients it is never documented. But still the mouth spread for the impact it gives is negative as to the serious side effects that it leaves on the patients that are provided with this agent.
The fibrin sealant is the other agent that can be injected to the patient suffering with the cystic hygroma after the aspiration but again people might get diverted of the impact of the disease due to the aspiration process and have the belief that the agent works fine. Thus the real impact of all types of agents has to be considered to be valid or not. If you have to stop worrying about which agent is correct or not the best solution is to approach reputed doctor who is capable of dealing the cystic hygroma which high percentage of positive results.
