This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains about central venous access devices, particularly for children with lysosomal storage disorders. Some lysosomal storage disorders can be treated with enzyme replacement therapy. This needs to be given directly into the blood stream. To do this, we will put a central venous access device into one of your child’s veins. This gives easy access to your child’s bloodstream so that your child can have enzyme replacement therapy.
This page explains how you can clean and dress an ulcerated haemangioma to promote healing and reduce pain. Brand names for certain dressings used at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) are mentioned on this page – this does not constitute endorsement by GOSH and alternative dressings will be available.
