Abstract: Optimal Sites for Supermicrosurgical Lymphaticovenular Anastomosis: An Analysis of 1259 Anastomoses


RESULTS: LVA resulted in 1259 anastomoses using 949 lymphatic vessels at 794 surgical sites. The number of anastomoses per limb ranged from 1 to 16 (median 5). Multivariate analyses revealed that factors associated with larger lymphatic vessel (0.5 mm or larger) were age [65 or older; odds ratio (OR) 1.403], radiation history (OR 1.622), incision in thigh… (More)
