These articles complement the PRS Grand Rounds Facebook Live Lecture and Q&A on “Surgical Management of Lymphedema" by David W. Chang, MD, FACS held on December 14, 2017 on Facebook.com/PRSJournal at 8:00 pm CT.

Lymphedema is a chronic, debilitating condition that causes physical, social and psychological morbidity, affecting up to 250 million people worldwide. Unfortunately, no cure for lymphedema currently exists. Recently, with the advances in techniques and equipment in microsurgery, there have been major and exciting new surgical procedures that have been developed to help treat and reduce the severity and complications of lymphedema. These new microsurgical procedures, such as lymphovenous bypass and vascularized lymph node transfer, have transformed the way we manage lymphatic patients and have also rejuvenated the field of lymphatic studies both clinically and academically.
