Default Venous malformation of knee

Hi there - this is my first time on this site and I hope you can provide me with some information.

My 3 year old daughter has a venous malformation in her right knee. She has had 3 sclerotherapies, but only the first one was successful. It decreased the lesion quite a bit, but she still has pain almost daily, walks with a limp and cannot extend or flex her knee fully. We seem to have exhausted our possibilities with our specialist (we live in Canada and she has been treated at Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto).

Does anyone have any suggestions for further therapy? We hate to see her in pain but aren't sure if there are any other options for her.

Thanks so much,
Susan
