Postoperative lymphatic complications after infrainguinal revascularization are troublesome and potentially serious complications. Vital dye injection into the web spaces of the foot has been recommended as a simple and reliable method to identify lymphatic channel disruption before groin exploration. Such distal injections, however, are not always successful. We describe a modified technique using a proximal thigh injection with isosulfan blue, which is faster and more useful than the distal web space method.
