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

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 ...

Fiji Integrated Therapy (FIT) - Triple Therapy for Lymphatic Filariasis Scabies and Soil Transmitted Helminths in Fiji

Lymphatic Filariasis (LF), scabies and soil transmitted helminths (STH) are common neglected tropical diseases affecting the people of Fiji. There is a dedicated LF eradication program supported by the World Health Organization (WHO), however scabies and STH are currently managed on an individual level with symptomatic treatment as required. In ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Breast Cancer-related Lymphedema With a Negative Pressure Device

Lymphedema (LE) is a protein-rich interstitial swelling caused by reduced lymph transport secondary to lymphatic system damage from cancer treatments. 1 in 5 women will develop LE following breast cancer treatment. These women have greater restrictions in activity and poorer quality of life (QOL) and are more prone to cellulitis ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Establishing Lymphedema and Fibrosis Measures in Oral Cancer Patients

The goal of this proposed study is to establish a valid, clinically useful measurement battery for head and neck LEF by achieving these specific aims: Aim 1: To determine the reliability and validity of the patient-reported outcome measure (LSIDS-H&N) for assessing LEF-related symptoms in oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer patients ...

Phase N/A

Two Pneumatic Compression Devices in the Treatment of Lower Extremity Lymphedema

This is a Multicentre, prospective, single (assessor) blind randomised study. The primary objective of the study is to assess volume reduction in the treatment of lymphoedematous legs with an advanced PCD compared to a simple PCD in patients with lower limb lymphoedema. The main outcome is the percentage volume reduction ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Evaluation of the Biobridge Scaffold as an Adjunct to Lymph Node Transfer for Upper Extremity Lymphedema

The investigators will perform lymph scans (lymphoscintigrams) before surgery and one year following surgery to determine the success of the surgery. In addition, the volume of the operated arm will be monitored by repeated measurement with a tape measure. The investigators will also track bioimpedance, a painless technique to detect ...

Phase N/A

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.
