    Lymphatic drainage is essentially the process wherein fluid from infected tissues drain to localized lymph nodes at the lower part of the body. This fluid carried by the lymphatic fluid carries toxic elements of the human metabolism, remaining toxins, and foreign infectious agents. This process is referred to as lymphatic drainage or lymphatic filtration. The lymphatic system eliminates large volume of fluid during the regular daily activity of the body and stores it in the body’s cells for the future usage. This fluid-absorbing process occurs through the body, not only in the lungs, spleen, liver and kidney.

    The major benefit of lymphatic drainage is that it is beneficial to the entire body health. Lymphatic fluids remove bacteria, virus, cells and other abnormal cells which may influence the function of the immune system. These abnormal cells are removed through the lymphatic drainage system to the sites of treatment. Together with the normal functioning of the immune system, the spread of disease-causing organisms is prevented.

    A medical practitioner who specializes in diagnosis and treatments of diseases like cancer, HIV/AIDS, leukemia and lymphoma can do a lung biopsy for a lung allograft. This is a process where a small incision is made in the lung. The doctor collects a sample of lung tissue and then constructs an artificial body from the collected material. After completing this procedure, the physician reconstructs the patient’s body via new artificial lung using a technique called lymphatic drainage.

    Lung cancer and chronic pulmonary (CPR) diseases are diseases which can be treated through lung allografts. Lung cancer is a tumor that has spread into the tissues of the lungs or other parts of the body. In this case, the disease has spread to the part of the body that receives air through breathing. As for the CPR disease, it’s a disease in which a person has been resuscitated after being put into respiratory arrest. Although this is a fantastic example of a disease process, it demonstrates the importance of lymphatic drainage. This is because the lungs were previously described as having a"crawl space," where germs had a opportunity to breed since there wasn’t a significant quantity of oxygen supply.

    When this happens, the lung tissues become the ideal place for infectious agents to replicate. Once infectious agents reproduce in this environment, it will become impossible to fight off the invading organisms and the disease process can then advance. Luckily, the lung tissues do not become a good place for bacteria to reproduce. This is why a lung lymphatics transplant is sometimes used together with a previously described pulmonary grafts.

    A pulmonary graft is basically a tissue from one part of the body is transplanted onto the areas of the lungs which are infected. The grafts are typically taken from the patient’s own lymphatic system or the umbilical cord, although patients can also be given tissue from a different person’s body if this is preferable. This permits the immune cells to enter the contaminated area without the problems that might develop because of rejection by the neighboring tissue.

    After the grafts are implanted, the new lymphatics can make a continuous journey toward the center. During this journey, the lymphatic fluids collect and go down the pulmonary artery. Occasionally, a chronic venous disease may be present which causes difficulties. In these cases, the fluid will accumulate in the inferior vena cava rather than the pulmonary artery. These are called intraluminal infusionations and have excellent results.

    Although this technology has been around for decades, there have been very few clinical trials on the use of an infantally invasive graft for treating childhood diseases like encephalopathy or lymphatic deficiency. But, there was a current report of achievement for a patient having an abysmal hemophilia virus disease who was given this graft. Other experimental procedures to treat peripheral tolerance include a combination of interferon gamma therapy, radioactive treatment, radiofrequency ablation and balloon catheters. All of these processes have shown promising results in certain patients but to date there are no published studies reporting achievement for each these treatments.
