Thank you to the Lymphatic Research Foundation for Creating this Video of the live symposium to allow many others to view. It includes some very interesting facts on the progress of surgery, the need for insurance cover and the difficulties of treating leg Lymphedema with surgery. It covers all types of surgery including Lymph Node Transfers, and lymphatic Venous Anastomoses.

  1. I was just reading last weekend that an ascorbic acid flush is good for cleansing the lymphatic system. Did’t know what it was so looked it up. I’ll have to look at it some more.
    Thanks
