Noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas (NICHs) persist in a high-flow state into childhood and often require surgical excision. The inherent vascular nature of these tumors make effective surgical treatment challenging. Here we report on a patient that underwent intraoperative glue embolization and complete excision of a large gluteal NICH. Concurrent glue embolization followed by complete excision allows for decreased intraoperative blood loss and easier discrimination between the tumor and surrounding structures. Treating difficult vascular tumors with a multidisciplinary approach and subsequent intraoperative glue embolization with surgical excision allows for an effective, single-stage approach to NICHs.
