[The combined strategy in treatment of lymphangiodysplasia].

[Article in Russian]


The experience of treatment of a rare form of pathology of the lymphatic system was analyzed. The surgical tactics, depending on both the dimentions and the form of lymphangiodysplasia, were described. The absence of the pain sensitivity and large tumor size were the main reason of medical help seeking for the patients on the late stages of the disease. To minimize the volume of the intraoperative bleeding, the authors recommend skeletization of the magistral arteries or their embolisation as a preliminary step before the lesion's surgical excision. The method proved to be extremely effective in two patients with giant lymphagioma.
