Abstract

Rodriquez Sica and Sica's technique of intra-organ lymphangiography is described and has been demonstrated to be effective in dogs. Ultrafluid liposoluble iodine dye is injected directly into the tissues at a slow rate, into areas where the capillary network is abundant, without any incision of the skin. The technique has been carried out in the head and neck, mammary glands, limbs, testis and rectum. Collateral channels, after obstruction of the thoracic duct, have been visualized. Lymphatics of intra-abdominal and retroperitoneal organs were seen. The possibility of using this technique in man is suggested, based upon the absence of lasting inflammatory reaction in the injected organ, and upon excellent tolerance of the procedure by experimental animals.
