Hi all;
I notice this topic has not been updated in quite some time. I recently learned that there is new surgery they are doing to treat lymphedema now! Referred to as LNT or LVB, these different surgeries either connect blocked lymph canals to an unblocked canal or vein, or transfer lymph nodes with a blood supply to a blocked area, after examining lymph flow with new techniques referred to as reverse lymph node mapping. Link to an article: http://www.mdedge.com/acssurgerynews/article/105865/general-surgery/lymphedema-microsurgery-gaining-momentum . This is super micro surgery, and relatively new, so I doubt it has reached less metropolitan areas yet, but this is so exciting and promising!
