Abstract There is no universally acceptable classification or method of treating congenital vascular lesions of the head and neck. An historical perspective, the hemodynamics of arteriovenous fistulas, and the various modalities of treatment are presented. The importance of superselective angiography in studying these lesions is emphasized. Embolization represents a major advance in the treatment of these patients and cooperation between head and neck surgeon and the vascular radiologist is encouraged. The evaluation and treatment of 66 patients with congenital head and neck vascular lesions are presented. The rationale for various types of treatment is reviewed.
