Abstract

To improve the results after surgical treatment of the lower legs' lymphedema, a new approach was developed by surgical ligation of the abnormal arteriolovenular shuntings. (Hyperstomy Syndrome). These findings are very common in congenital and postphlebitic lymphedemas. The abnormal branchings are easily localized by serial arteriography. The excision techniques like the Charles' operation, presents after this new method much better esthetic appearance with out formation of hyperkeratosis or verrucous warts commonly found after these operations.
