Warm Acupuncture for Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema

The purpose of this study is to clarify whether local-distal point association is more effective than local point association by warm acupuncture in the management of breast cancer related lymphedema.

Phase N/A

Characterization of Treatment Responses in Lymphedema

Patients presenting to the Investigator's Clinic for evaluation and treatment of (upper or lower extremity) lymphedema, will be assessed for their suitability (of low risk) for medical treatment with ketoprofen. If there are no contra-indications to taking ketoprofen, after discussion of FDA warnings, including provision of a written copy of ...

Phase N/A

Lymphovenous Bypass Procedure Before Underarm Lymph Node Surgery in Preventing Lymphedema in Patients With Inflammatory or Locally Advanced Non-inflammatory Breast Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the protective benefit to performing lymphovenous bypass (LVB) surgery at the time of axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) for patients that are high risk for developing breast-cancer related lymphedema (LE) of the upper extremity. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the medical outcomes for patients receiving LVB ...

Phase N/A

An Investigational Surgical Procedure (Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer) in Reducing the Risk of Lymphedema in Patients With Breast Cancer Undergoing Breast Reconstruction

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine incidence of patients who develop lymphedema following autologous breast reconstruction. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the overall complications of prophylactic vascularized lymph node transfers. II. Compare the incidence of patients who develop lymphedema following autologous breast reconstruction among patients who had prophylactic lymph node transfer and a ...

Phase N/A

Ketogenic Diet: a Novel Metabolic Strategy to Treat Lymphedema Patients?

Lymphedema is a debilitating disorder that severely impairs the quality of life of the patients and requires life-long attention. It can be classified as primary or secondary, based on the etiology. Primary lymphedema is a rare, congenital disorder caused by inherited genetic mutation on a number of genes that are ...

Phase N/A

Axillary Reverse Mapping in Preventing Lymphedema in Patients With Breast Cancer Undergoing Axillary Lymph Node Dissection

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the occurrence of post-surgery lymphedema by conical geometric measures in clinical T1-3, N0-3, M0 breast cancer patients undergoing axillary surgery and randomized to Group 1 (no axillary reverse mapping [ARM]) versus Group II (ARM). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To compare between the study groups the lymphedema ...


Pilot Usability and Feasibility Testing on Kinect-Enhanced Training System for Lymphatic Exercises

Correct performance of therapeutic lymphatic exercises has the potential to relieve lymphedema symptoms and optimize limb volume and lymph fluid level, in turn to improve breast cancer survivors' quality of life and reduce the risk of lymphedema. Kinect-TOLF (Kinect-Enhanced The-Optimal-Lymph-Flow Training System) is an innovative intelligent Kinect-enhanced training system to ...
