Abstract Lymph leaks after vascular groin dissections can be a challenging postoperative complication for both patient and surgeon. A multidisciplinary team at a district general hospital in the United Kingdom consisting of breast, plastic, and vascular surgeons performed intraoperative lymphatic mapping using patent blue V dye to locate the exact location of a groin lymph leak before sealing the leak with direct vision ligation and Floseal Hemostatic Matrix (Baxter Healthcare Corp., Hayward, CA).
