BACKGROUND Indocyanine green lymphography has been a highly useful modality in the clinical examination and surgical management of patients with lymphedema. No formal classification system of indocyanine green imaging findings according to the severity of lymphedema exists, however. The purpose of this study was to describe, analyze, and classify characteristic indocyanine green lymphography findings to uniformly guide surgical management of lymphedema using this modality. METHODS Forty-five… CONTINUE READING
