KNOW HOW

Main Research Lines

During this period, the most important and innovative Research Areas, in compliance with the goals set by the appointment received from the School of Medicine, were:

  • Clinical applications of Lymphatic Surgery and, in particular, the application of  Microsurgical techniques as applied to General Surgery.
  • Prevention and treatment of general and loco-regional, congenital and acquired lymphatic flow disorders: lymphedema, lymphorrhea, lymphocele, acute lymphangitis, chylipherous vessels, “chylous cyst”, and thoracic duct diseases.
  • Coupling Microsurgical Techniques with Laser-CO2, Endovascular-Laser and Endoscopic Microsurgery.

Surgical Case Report

During the period from 1973 to 2013, 2987 surgical cases were reported, with a post-op follow-up of at least 10 years until over 20 years, the majority of them with application of, either derivative and/or reconstructive, Lymphatic Microsurgery techniques.
