Abstract

Transplantation of lymph vessels is a new method for causal therapy of secondary and of special forms of primary lymphedema (Baumeister et al. 1981 a). The aim of this new method is the reconstruction of the lymphatic pathway in the case of a local blockage: for example, after lymph node dissection, radiation, and trauma, and also in the case of unilateral atresia of the lymphatic system in the iliac region (Baumeister et al. 1981 b). In this way the diminished transporting capacity in lymphedema (Földi 1977) should be restored or at least improved.
