Abstract

Authors report anatomical and pathophysiologic aspects concerning lymphedema following breast cancer treatment. They underline clinical and lymphoscintigraphic criteria to define lymphedema-risk patients, in whom preventive measures are indicated. They propose a surgical primary prevention, by performing direct lymphatic-venous anastomosis at the same time of axillary nodal dissection (LY.M.P.H.A. - Lymphatic Microsurgical Preventing Healing Approach).
