A wide clinical experience in General Surgery has brought about a remarkable knowledge about lymphatic disorders both primary and secondary ones. Diagnostic and histopathological studies of lymphatic diseases allowed to better understand etiological aspects and pathophysiological mechanisms responsible of complex clinical features correlated to lymphatic dysfunctions. Translational lymphologic basic and clinical researches permitted to improve therapeutical approaches both from the medical and surgical point of view. Thus, strategies of treatment were proposed to prevent lymphatic injuries, to avoid lymphatic complications and to treat lymphatic diseases early in order to be able even to cure these pathologies.
