This article highlights the significant improvement of pediatric primary extremity lymphedema using either vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT) or lymphovenous anastomosis (LVA). 85% of pediatric primary extremity lymphedema required a VLNT rather than LVA to achieve an optimal outcome and satisfactory quality of life.
