Phase N/A

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 ...

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

Lymphedema Prophylaxis in Breast Cancer Survivors Who Show Early Evidence of High-risk Status

The current investigation is designed to prospectively evaluate the potential for simple, effective lymphedema prophylaxis in breast cancer survivors who show early evidence of high-risk status. There is growing evidence that the mechanisms of lymphatic repair after injury are mediated through lymphatic flow. Accordingly, we propose that physical measures designed ...

Phase N/A

Pre-existing Factors Early Detection and Early Treatment of Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema

Breast-cancer related lymphoedema (BCRL) is a common phenomenon. Estimates of incidence rates have varied over time, especially since the progression to less invasive techniques as sentinel node procedures and radiotherapy. According to a review article of DiSipio the incidence of arm lymphedema was about four times higher in women who ...


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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Studying the Physical Function and Quality of Life Before and After Surgery in Patients With Stage I Cervical Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To examine the changes before and after non-radical surgical treatment (simple hysterectomy or cone biopsy [fertility preservation]) and pelvic lymphadenectomy) on functional outcomes of bladder, bowel, and sexual function for stage IA1 (lymphatic vessel invasion positive [LVSI+]) and IA2-IB1 (=< 2 cm) carcinoma of the cervix. II. ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Analysis of Symptoms and Lymphedema in Patients Following Treatment for Breast Cancer

The method that we propose for this trial is to administer a condensed form of the Lymphedema and Breast Cancer Questionnaire (LBCQ) , Disabilities of the Arm Shoulder and Hand (DASH) and Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy- Breast quality of life instrument (FACT-B) as surveys/questionnaires within the clinic. This combined ...
