Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer

Vascularized lymph node transfer is one of the methods used in the surgical treatment of lymphedema (arm swelling). The procedure involves replacing lymph nodes damaged or removed by previous breast cancer treatment with healthy lymph nodes from another part of the body. This can help restore the lymphatic drainage of the arm and can improve arm lymphedema.
