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.

Phase N/A

Lymphedema Following Hand/Wrist Surgery in Women Post Axillary Node Dissection

This is a prospective, randomized, equivalence trial designed to evaluate postoperative complications following hand surgery with a brachial tourniquet and without a tourniquet in patients that have previously had a mastectomy with axillary node dissection with or without radiation treatment or history of lymphedema.

Phase N/A

Prevention of Lymphedema Among Breast Cancer Patients Through Implementation of an Integrative Therapy Program (ITP)

Recruitment and Intervention: The study participants are recruited by their breast surgeon after they undergo axillary node dissection surgery. 4-6 weeks following surgery, the participants will receive a combination of acupuncture and self management education . Contents of self-management education include: Lymphedema knowledge: functions of the lymphatic system, anatomy of ...

Propranolol Dose Escalation in Lymphedema in Patients

Lymphatic malformations (LMs) arise from abnormal development of lymphatic vasculature. Primary lymphedema is considered a form of LM. Recently, results in the investigators' laboratory demonstrated that propranolol, a pan beta-adrenergic receptor (AR) antagonist, had cytotoxic and anti-proliferative effects against cells isolated from LM tissues. Preliminary results from treating symptomatic LM ...

Platelet Rich Plasma Complex Decongestive Physiotherapy and Low Level Laser in Treatment of Lower Extremity Lymphoedema

At the end of the study, comparative information about the effects of PRP, complex decongestive physiotherapy and low level laser on edema volume, range of motion, muscle strength, functional capacity and quality of life will be obtained in the treatment of patients with lower limb lymphedema. Since there is no ...

Preventive Intervention Against Lymphedema After Breast Cancer Surgery

Lymphedema is a well known and much dreaded complication after breast cancer surgery. The aim in this study is to examine if lymphedema can be prevented with early progressive strength training focusing on the arm, and close monitoring of pre clinical lymphedema in the 1 year exercise period. The primary ...

Phase

Lymphatic and Systemic Immunity Changes in Post-radiation Lymphedema Development

The goal of this study is to find out which immune molecules, cells, and genes are involved in the development of lymphedema (LE), so that medicines that target them can be considered for treating lymphedema. The hypothesis is that LE is a systemic, autoimmune-like disease that is initiated by inflammatory ...

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 ...
