Chronic venous insufficiency causes both pathological-anatomical changes of the the limbs as well as functional. Isotope lymphography is suitable to investigate function of the lymphatic drainage [1]. Direct lymphography with oily contrast agent entails complications and aggravation of the lymphatic desease and should not be used in the examination of chronic edema [2].
