Supermicrosurgical Lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) is an established minimal invasive procedure for the treatment of lymphedema. In the last years, many advances has been made in LVA, which allows to treat successfully not only the early and moderate cases, but also the advanced ones. Lymphedema is a complex, chronic, progressive and debilitating disease affecting up to 250 million persons worldwide. In developed Countries, the most frequent ethiopatogenesis is related to cancer treatments which actually lead, in some cases, to a therapeutical paradox "cured from cancer, living with a chronic benign debilitating disease". Lymphedema patients require a multidisciplinary approach where microsurgeons and physical therapists should be allied to offer the best combined treatment. This textbook represents the first book entirely dedicated to supermicrosurgical LVA. Physiopathological basis and rationale, disease severity staging examinations and all the practical tricks for the successful execution of this procedure are provided by the World Masters in the field.
