The article deals with the previously existing classifications of congenital vascular developmental abnormalities (angiodysplasias,malformations), with an emphasis put on the main classificatory features, as well as on the basic differences between angiodysplasias and haemangiomas. Due coverage is given to specifying certain problems related to the apparently synonymous technical terms and words widely used in the clinical practice concerned. Also, carefully described herein are two most frequently occurring in the practice of cardiovascular surgery classifications of dysplasias, namely that of Hamburg, and V.N. Dan's classification with a close look at the strengths and weaknesses thereof.

KEY WORDS: angiodysplasias (malformations), classification.
