In chronic lymphedema, lymphatic hypertension may cause lymphatic lumen dilatation and valvular dysfunction, making retrograde flow possible. For those who seek optimal LVA outcomes, it was believed that the use of side-to-end, side-to-side, and end-to-side (retrograde flow) lymphaticovenous anastomoses, based on the concept of retrograde flow, can help to reduce lymphedema.
