Purpose: Patients with congenital vascular malformations often suffer from arthralgia, especially of the lower limbs.This orthopaedic disease pattern is defined as destructive, angiodysplastic arthritis or Hauert disease. As it does lead to very early destruction of the joints it is necessary to review the early use of orthopaedic surgical techniques and vascular surgery in improving  quality of life and long follow up results.

Methods: From our multidisciplinary team database of patients with vascular malformations

affecting the limbs and the joints, we examined clinically all patients after combined orthopaedic and vascular surgery diagnosed as Hauert disease. Controll MRIs, radiographs and or controll arthroscopies were performed and evaluated.

Results: Conclusion: Diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms emphasize the Hauert disease as a possible differential diagnosis in order to minimize the risk of incorrect diagnosis which might lead to under-, over-, or even incorrect treatment. Thus pitfalls can be avoided. A minimally invasive transarthroscopic therapy in combination with resective vascular surgery in the early stages can lead to significant improvement of symptoms and prevention of progressive joint destruction.
