Super microsurgery revolutionses the lymphedema therapy
Supermicrosurgery revolutionizes lymphedema therapy, wrote Lucerne cantonal Hospital in their article on 9th of September 2020, as anastomoses of superficial lymphatic vessels and veins can now be performed.
In supermicrosurgery, as used in lymphatic vessel surgery, vessels with a diameter of less than 0.8mm are dissected and anastomosed. This type of microsurgery has revolutionized surgical treatment in the field of lymphedema therapy. Thus, anastomoses of superficial lymphatic vessels and veins can be performed for the treatment of disturbed lymphatic drainage pathways, which was previously not possible without supermicrosurgery.

According to Lucerne Cantonal Hospital this demanding surgery can now be performed faster and safer at the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital with the help of the world's first RoboticScope®. With RoboticScope® the surgeon can interact with the visualisation tool without taking his eyes or hands off the surgical site. In this way, more precise and ergonomic work can be achieved , stated the Lucerne Cantonal hospital.
The following video of PD Dr. med. Mario Scaglioni, Senior Physician, Department of Hand and Plastic Surgery performing supermicrosurgery presents clearly the precision with which the surgeon can suture and restore the function of anastomoses with the help of the RoboticScope®.
Note: One square of the base measures 1x1mm!
With PD Dr. med. Mario Scaglioni and the RoboticScope®, the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital has in Central Switzerland the only proven specialist and the technological equipment for lymphedema therapy through supermicrosurgery.
Thank you Lucerne Cantonal Hospital for the great article!
