Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

A Real World Observational Registry of Chronic Wounds and Ulcers

This is a longitudinal, observational study of chronic wounds and ulcers treated at participating hospital based, outpatient wound centers. Data collection began in 2005. Structured data are collected at the point of care in the patient electronic health record and data from all patients at more than 100 wound centers ...

Phase N/A

Circaid Compression Sleeve Versus Short-stretching Bandage in Upper Limb Lymphatic Edema

During the intensive decongestive treatment phase, which usually takes place in specialized lymphedema treatment departments, the staff are properly trained and have the required experience, but the appliance of these short-length compression bandages requires a lot of time. During the maintenance phase, the appliance of short stretch bandages gives way ...

Phase N/A

Decongestive Exercise and Compression for Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema Management

Lymphedema is a swelling in the arm, chest wall and breast on the side of the breast cancer. Arm lymphedema develops as a result of breast cancer surgery and/ or radiation therapy. Compression therapy and exercise are commonly prescribed treatment to help reduce the arm swelling and to maintain the ...

Phase N/A

Skin/Soft Tissue Elasticity in Head and Neck Cancer Survivors With Lymphedema and Fibrosis

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To obtain pilot data of the elasticity of skin/soft tissues using shear wave elasticity at the defined anatomical sites in head and neck cancer survivors with lymphedema and fibrosis (LEF). II. To explore the correlation between elasticity of skin/soft tissues and the following: 1) symptoms as measured ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of BIS for Quantification of Lymphedema

During the study whenever you have an arm volume measurement using the Perometer, we will also measure the fluid in your arms using Bioimpedance Spectroscopy. These measurements are made by passing a harmless electrical signal of very low strength through your body to determine the difference in the amount of ...

Phase N/A

A Study Comparing Quality of Life in Patients With Lymphedema Who Undergo Surgical Treatment Versus Non-Surgical Management

This study is being done to see the long-term results for patients who choose to have surgery for lymphedema (with the vascularized lymph node transfer), compared to patients who choose not to have surgery.

Phase N/A

Histologic Analysis of the Lymphatic Vessels Used for Supermicrosurgical Lymphatico-venous Anastomoses in Lymphedema

Background Lymphedema is a chronic pathologic condition that causes significant functional impairment to the patient and has a great impact on his quality of life. It may be primary or secondary. Secondary lymphedema, that is the most common, is generally due to surgery and radiotherapy for cancer, particularly of the ...

Phase N/A

Measuring Skin Elasticity in Lymphedema Patients

This protocol will utilize the lymphedema indentometer, or durometer (a novel, noninvasive piece of equipment that measures skin elasticity), to better characterize disease progression in patients with lymphedema. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center patients who undergo treatment of lymphedema will be candidates for this noninvasive test. This device and the ...
