Lymphedema is a chronic condition characterized by severe swelling of the limbs or other tissues due to the build-up of fluid that would normally be drained by the lymphatic
vessels in the villi of the lamina propria were ectatic, and D2-40 positive & CD34 negative stainings were observed (Figure 3).
In this study, we used IHC staining method to identify lymphatic
invasion (using D2-40 marker) in breast cancer specimens.
A mild, focal infiltrate of lymphocytes was observed near lymphatics
The discovery of DEC in 1947 was a major breakthrough in the elimination of lymphatic
However, if chylous ascites and retroperitoneal rupture is present at laparotomy, the retroperitoneal space should be explored and the ruptured lymphatics
must be ligated to stop chyle leakage.
The imaging protocol generally consists of a heavily T2-weighted sequence in order to evaluate the extent and distribution of the lymphedema and of a 3D fast spoiled gradient-echo T1-weighted sequence with a fat-saturation technique for the lymphatic
visualization [3, 9,10].
To investigate a possible endothelial damage caused by Tm-DOTMA administration, HE-stained lymphatic
vessels were sectioned after administration of Gd-DO3A-butrol (Figure 3(a)) and Tm-DOTMA (Figure 3(b)).
First case of lymphatic
malformation (LM) was described by Redenbacher in 1828 .
The recommended treatment of lymphedema is an association of therapies such as Manual and Mechanical Lymphatic
Therapy, compression mechanisms (stockings and bandages), myolymphokinetic activities, and exercises and care with hygiene .
Developmental malformation of the renal lymphatic
system results into failure of lymphatic
tissue to establish communication with rest of lymphatic
Emerging roles of lymphatics
