Previous authors have shown benefits from the use of lymph node flap transfer (LNFT) to treat lymphedema of the arms, but there is little evidence for its use for lower limb lymphedema. We performed a retrospective analysis of a series of patients suffering from secondary lower limb lymphedema treated with a free LNFT.
