Pathogenetic peculiarities of sclerosing of blood vessels in hemangioma in minor aged children upon exposure by electromagnetic optical spectrum radiation

Our aim was to study pathogenetically significant markers of sclerosing of hemangiomas in infants upon their exposure to optical radiation in the infrared region of the spectrum by analyzing thermog-raphy and morphology examination results.
Materials and methods
The basis for the thermographic study was our observation for 200 patients (birth to age 1), who re-ceived the hemangioma treatment in 2014–2016. We investigated thermograms of each vascular tumor in infants both before and after the treatment conducted with the use of the infrared themog-raphy (IRT) method.
It has been established that an alteration of the heat field structure in a vascular malformation de-pends on a treatment stage. When sclerosing the blood vessels in the malformation, the thermo-graphic indicators show a sharp decrease (from 39,90 С at a temperature gradient of +3,060 С to 36,00 С at a temperature gradient of +0,10 С) and approach the normal values.
It has been found that evidence data on temperature distribution in hemangiomas obtained with re-mote infrared thermography are in good correlation with the criteria of biological fluid morphology as well as the relevant ultrasound scanning data. The factual evidence makes possible to provide an objective assessment of the states and stages of development of the vascular malformations in order to select the most adequate therapy.
