Abstract

In two cases of intramuscular hemangioma of the paraspinous muscles, the tumors were treated with arteriographic embolization followed by immediate local excision. We found that this technique creates a hypovascular surgical field and facilitates the dissection. We believe this approach will decrease morbidity and potential mortality.
