abstract

  • Subclinical lymphatic dysfunction exacerbates the pathologic changes of lymphatic injury, an effect that is multifactorial and related to increased lymphatic leakiness, perilymphatic accumulation of inflammatory cells, and impaired pumping and transport capacity. These findings suggest that preoperative testing of lymphatic function may enable clinicians to more accurately risk-stratify patients and design targeted preventative strategies.
