Sclerotherapy of lymphatic cysts of the leg with OK-432


Clemens, Robert K J; Meier, Thomas O; Pfiffner, Roger; Hafner, Jürg; Amann-Vesti, Beatrice (2012). Sclerotherapy of lymphatic cysts of the leg with OK-432. Vasa, 41(2):149-153.

Abstract

Lymphatic cysts can either represent lymphatic malformations (LMs) or may occur after trauma or operation. Independent of their etiology lymphatic cysts can cause functional impairment and recurrent skin infections. We report the successful use of OK-432 injected transcutanously to treat lymphatic macrocysts. Treatment of LMs with OK-432 has been reported to be a safe and minimally invasive procedure. The underlying mechanism is still unclear but injection leads to an inflammation of the wall resulting in occlusion or shrinkage of the cyst.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
