Resum

© 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Cancer-related lymphedema is a progressive, chronic condition that impairs quality of life. Its pathophysiology and the mechanisms of action of current reconstructive surgical treatments are not fully understood but lymphaticovenous communications may play a key role. We review the available literature on lymphaticovenous communications and their implications in lymphedema surgery, and propose a subclassification of lymphaticovenous communications.
