The article contains an analysis of different mechanisms of persistent chronic venous insufficiency formation and its impact on the condition of lower extremity magistral vein wall. The authors studied autopsy samples of femoral vein segments from 86 patients aged 56 to 64 years, who had died of non-cardiovascular diseases. The investigation revealed(More)
We evaluated the use of transplantation of the greater omentum in the management of chronic lymphedema in 21 patients. The omentum provides a large surface with fluid absorbing capability and potentially therefore is useful in management of patients with primary or hypoplastic peripheral lymphatics. Based on the angio- and lymphangio-architecture of the(More)
Despite advances in microsurgery, the most suitable operation for primary lymphedema remains unclear. A variety of tissue transplants and artificial substances have been used to facilitate drainage of peripheral lymph. The greater omentum, for example, has absorptive lymph draining capability, fights infection, and is expendable for the abdomen. Previous(More)
Out of 79 patients with upper limb lymphoedema 73 developed it following radical mastectomy. The ages of the patients ranged from 32 to 75. Direct upper lymphography and phlebography was carried out in 73 cases. Two factors have turned out to be important when microlymphatic surgery is considered: the level of blockade of the lymph trunks and the condition(More)
A total of 510 cases of primary and secondary lymphoedema in upper and lower extremities have been examined with two thirds of primary lymphoedema cases among them. Radical mastectomy combined with irradiation has led to the development of obstructive lymphoedema of upper limbs in most patients. 230 patients with primary and secondary lymphoedema have been(More)
The functional capacity of the lymph vessels in their various pathological conditions was determined from 78 studies of the endolymphatic pressure in patients with lymphatic edema of the extremities. Four types of pressure curves were determined according to the maintenance of the contractility of the wall of the lymph vessels. It was found that marked(More)
From 1995 to 2003 lymphatic complications (lymphorrhea and lymphocele) after different vascular surgeries on the lower extremities were seen in 57 (4.6%) patients. All the methods of therapeutic and surgical treatment of lymphorrhea and lymphocele are presented. Problems of surgical policy and some aspects of pathogenesis of these complications are(More)
The study group included 171 patients suffering from postmastectomy syndrome which had developed either after combined treatment for breast cancer or after radical mastectomy alone. Lymphographic examination of 146 cases carried out long after treatment for primary treatment revealed frequent roentgenologic features characteristic of all patterns of(More)
