LYMPHOGRAPHY WITHOUT THE AID OF VITAL DYES

Author
  • K Sigurjonsson

Abstract

In most hospitals where lymphography is performed, the technique described by Kinmonth et al. {1,2), has formed the basis of the examination technique. The localisation of the lymphatics is made with the aid of a dye injected into the first interdigital space of the foot.

A considerable incidence of allergic reactions to the dyes has been reported (up to 2.5 percent) (3). As experienced operators have reported (4) that the lymphatics are easy to localize also without the previous injection of dye, we found it worthwhile to compare the results of examinations carried out with and without the application of dye.
