New Technique of Lymphatic-Venous Anastomosis for the Treatment of Lymphedema

  • Mario Degni


80 × 12, 80 × 15, or more rarely 80 × 18 special needles (Fig. A) are used in which one-third of the circumference has been removed to a length of 2.5 cm from the end of the needle. This superficial groove permits free passage of a curved arterial needle with 6-0 or 7-0 nylon. The lymphatics are stained with patent blue violet (PBV) according to Kinmonth’s technique.
