REZENDE, Laura Ferreira de; PEDRAS, Felipe Villela; RAMOS, Celso Dario  e  GURGEL, Maria Salete Costa. Evaluation of lymphatic compensation by lymphoscintigraphy in the postoperative period of breast cancer surgery with axillary dissection. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.4, pp.370-375.  Epub 12-Dez-2008. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492008005000002.

The lymphatic system is a component of the human body that is closely related to the venous system. However, scientific knowledge of this system is limited. The etiology and risk factors for the development of postoperative lymphedema in patients with breast cancer seem to be multifactorial and have not been fully understood yet. The objective of this review of the literature was to describe lymphoscintigraphic pattern and to evaluate upper limb lymphatic compensation following breast cancer surgery with axillary dissection.

Palavras-chave : Lymphatic system; lymphatic drainage; axillary dissection; lymphoscintigraphy; breast cancer.
