Abstract

Lymph vessel transplants are now used in the therapy of secondary lymphedema (Baumeister et al. 1981). Since the conception of bridging local lymph vessel defects by autogeneic grafts, Baumeister (1983) has performed 21 lymph vessel transplantations to date, mostly in women suffering from secondary lymphedema after mastectomy and postoperative irradiation. During on observation period of 5 months, an average reduction of 60% of the lymphedema was seen.
