Default newborn with venous vm

My son is 9 weeks old and was born with venous vm of the leg, butt, scrotum, and penis. The MRI shows that it is very extensive...the most extensive case the doctors have ever seen. The Pediatricians at the hospital didn't know what it was and had never seen a case like this before. It is very deep and they are worried that it will affect the muscles. WE meet next month with the Dermatologist, Vascular Surgeon, Plastic Surgeon, Radiologist, Urologist to have them all examine him together and try to come up with a plan of action. Does anyone else have any experience with a Venous VM? Thanks
