Dermal Flap:

Segment of skin used in the Kondolean, Homans-Miller and thompsons_procedures that was actually sewn into the muscle of the lymphedema limb in attempts to draw fluids into the deeper lymphatics. Because of the consistant lack of positive effects usage has largely been discontinued and not recommended.
