Functional recovery of fluid drainage precedes lymphangiogenesis in acute murine foreleg lymphedema.

Abstract

Secondary lymphedema in humans is a common consequence of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) to treat breast cancer. It is commonly hypothesized that lymphatic growth is required to increase fluid drainage and ameliorate lymphedema. Although there is a pronounced alteration in the balance of interstitial forces regulating fluid transport that sustains… (More)
