Not to mention here explicitly everyone of us today have the best understanding that even the small problem today is addressed with the medical term called surgery. Irrespective of the intensity of problem doctors prescribe a surgery and people just go with it with the assumption that their problem is quickly addressed with this medical line. But however not all the cases would need the surgery. Let us see how far the surgery is mandatory for the cystic hygroma and how well it works in case if one has taken the pain of undergoing through the surgery process.
While the results are kept aside the preliminary step that both operating team and family members of the patient suffering with cystic hygroma should go deep into the knowledge about the CH as the benign lesion. Doctors definitely advise you something that benefits your health. When they notice that there is acute infection present in the patient even before the resection then they do not recommended for surgery for at least 3 months. Main purpose as is understood by the operating team is that they should be able to complete or else remove lymphangioma as much as possible while sparing all the vital neurovascular structures.
This is reason that surgery by non-experts in case of cystic hygroma might result in serious problem that are related to neuro system. Even with the surgery not all the cases will be free of the cystic hygroma impact. Only 40% of the cases have the possibility complete exicision. The procedure that is to be followed by the operating team is quite important as they have to concentrate only in the first attempt while the secondary excisions can be very much complicated in terms of the distorted fibrosis anatomical landmarks.
While the simple lesions are fine to operate in surgery, the microcystic lesions are quite difficult to remove as they have intimate association with the nearby tissues and hence will present a challenging work for the operating team. So for these types of lesions the advancement is the laser therapy which proves to be much better than the surgery. In general the cystic hygroma that is found in infants is quite difficult to handle as the excision found are very few even in thorough diagnosis. You get to know hardly the neurovascular structure of the infants especially the facial nerve or the other nerves that are very critical and sensitive too in the premature infants.
Hence is the reason surgery is not recommended in these infants until they grow as big as 2 years. This is very important when they have to work on the facial never that is located in parotid area. Sometimes it is mandatory that the surgical evaluation is done even during the diagnosis phase for the signs of obstructions of airway. When in emergency this can be treated with aspiration from experienced doctors as the 18 or 20 gauge measured needle that will obviate with the combination of the emergency tracheostomy. Radio frequency and magnetic resonance are the other ways that are suggested for the treatment of the cystic hygroma. The radio frequency ablation can be found to be used as the treatment in cases of intraoral lymphatic malformations and for the specific microcystic lesions.
The magnetic resonance that is controlled with the laser induced special interstitial thermotherapy is considered as the novel therapy for treating the patients suffering with the lymphangiomas. But in case if surgery has to be replaced by aspirations then one single aspiration might not be sufficient and might need multiple aspirations based on the symptoms that are noticed in the patient. Once knowing all these it is your choice whether to go for surgery or any other alternative.
