A novel therapy for lymphedema complicated by lymphorrhea. Vascular medicine Szuba, A., Cooke, J. P., Rockson, S. G. 1996; 1 (4): 247-250


Lymphorrhea is a rarely described complication of chronic lymphedema, in which the disrupted flow through diseased lymphatic channels gives rise to the external drainage of lymph, often heralded by the presence of an enlarging lymphocele. This report documents the applicability of the Reid sleeve, a novel, conservative form of therapy, in an unusually severe and protracted example of lymphorrhea.
