Refreshing / updating back-links

I really heavily on back-links that are created when creating links to other texts. In this creative process I also have to delete or alter these links as it becomes clear they are no longer valid.

When I change or remove a link, the original back-link from the previous link is not removed.

Is there a way to keep the back-links in sync with the currently mentioned links, either by removing them automatically when changing or altering links or by completely refreshing all back-links?
