Program Description: 

Cavernous hemangioma, the most common benign orbital tumor in adults, can usually be diagnosed by pre-operative imaging. However, micro-anatomic relationships to normal structures and future growth potential are unknowns at patient presentation. These variables impact vision both in the tumor’s natural history and its treatment outcomes. Understanding the lesion’s pathogenesis underscores the importance of its topography within the orbit, and how the latter can aid in management decisions. 

 

Target audience: 
  • Physician
  • Physician (fellow/resident)
  • Optometrists
  • Ophthalmic photographers
  • Medical Students
Learning objectives: 

Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to: 

  • Analyze the pathogenesis and natural history of orbital cavernous hemangioma (venous malformation) 
  • Explain how tumor topography impacts function  
  • Differentiate the therapeutic options, and how their application varies with tumor topography
