Response to Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Therapy in Head and Neck Cancer-related Lymphedema

A non-randomized, non-blinded, single site pilot study designed to assess whether near-infrared fluorescence imaging can report on the efficacy of a pneumatic compression device to move lymph in head and neck cancer survivors with resulting head and neck lymphedema.

Quality of Life Changes on Lower Extremity Lymphedema Patients Using an Advanced PCD

Multi-centered, single arm, observational clinical trial of a prospective cohort of an estimated 300 participants with primary or secondary, unilateral or bilateral, lower extremity lymphedema. All participants receive intermittent pneumatic compression treatment for 52 weeks. Quality of life and symptoms will be assessed pre- and post - intermittent pneumatic compression ...

Bioimpedance Spectroscopy Versus Tape Measure in Prevention of Lymphedema

The treatment of lymphedema following breast cancer therapy is typically a burdensome multi-modality process that entails different degrees of intensity depending on the severity of fluid accumulation. In breast cancer survivors, it is most commonly initiated after visible swelling occurs in a limb. Common treatments utilized are multi-modality and include ...

Comfort Subcutaneous Drainage: a Descriptive Study Among Palliative Phase Cancer Patients

Lower limbs lymphedemas are often reported in advanced palliative phase cancer patients. These oedemas have multiple causes and are complicated to be taken care of. Actual available treatments such as physiotherapist massage and compression stockings, are often lacking efficiency and are not adapted for these patients. Physical embarrassment, pain and ...

Effectiveness of Fluoroscopy-guided MLD for Treatment of BCRL

According to the International Society of Lymphology, lymphoedema needs to be treated with Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy (Consensus Document ISL 2013). This is a two-stage treatment programme. During the first or intensive phase, lymphoedema has to be maximally reduced. This phase consists of skin care, manual lymph drainage (MLD), multi-layer bandaging ...

Optimization of Mass Drug Administration With Existing Drug Regimens for Lymphatic Filariasis and Onchocerciasis for Ivory Coast (DOLF-Ivory Coast)

Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is a deforming and disabling infectious disease that causes elephantiasis and genital deformity (especially hydroceles). The infection affects some 120 million people in 81 countries in tropical and subtropical regions with well over 1 billion people at risk of acquiring the disease [1]. LF is caused by ...

Selective Axillary Lymph Node Dissection Vs Complete Axillary Dissection: A Randomised Clinical Trial to Assess the Prevention of Lymphedema in Breast Cancer Treatment

To evaluate the efficacy, safety and cost reduction of SAD compared to standard ALND, we propose a prospective 2-arm randomised trial. The control arm consists of patients randomized to ALND, the study arm consists of patients randomized to SAD.

Out-of Pocket Payments With Lymphedema in France

Lymphedema is a frequent and chronic condition posing a high burden on patients. Clinical guidelines emphasize the role of compression therapy by prescription medical devices. Even in a mandatory publicly funded health insurance system, out-of-pocket payments (OOPP) may exist due to the price and reimbursement setting processes. OOPP may threaten ...

Characterization of the Pathogenesis of Primary and Secondary Lymphatic Disorders

Disorders of lymphatic function are associated with multiple presentations, the most common of which is lymphedema, a chronic swelling of the extremities, due to impaired lymphatic drainage. It can cause disability and a predisposition to infection and chronic ulceration. Other lymphatic disorders present with visceral manifestations such as regional or ...

Clinical Translation of a Novel Albumin-Binding PET Radiotracer 68Ga-NEB

The labeling of albumin has advantages as drawing blood is unnecessary and the operator labeling is not exposed to potentially infectious material. Evans blue (EB) dye has high affinity for serum albumin, The final obtained products NEB (a NOTA conjugate of a truncated form of Evans blue for in vivo ...
