Breast cancer-related lymphoedema (BCRL) is a chronic condition that requires lifelong management to prevent the condition worsening and to reduce the threat of infection. Women are affected in all domains of their life. As a holistic practice, yoga may be of benefit by reducing both the physical and psychosocial effects of lymphoedema. Women with BCRL are attending yoga classes in increasing numbers, so it is essential that yoga be based on principles that ensure lymphoedema is controlled and not exacerbated...

PURPOSE: Completion lymph node dissection (CLND) following a positive sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has been reported to be less morbid than lymphadenectomy for palpable disease (therapeutic lymph node dissection; TLND). The reporting of morbidity data can be heterogeneous, and hence no 'average' surgical complication rates of these procedures has been reported. This review aims to determine complications rates to inform patients undergoing surgery for metastatic melanoma. METHODS: A systematic review of English-language literature from 2000 to 2017, reporting morbidity information about CLND and TLND for melanoma, was performed...

BACKGROUND: Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is best known for the disabling and disfiguring clinical conditions that infected patients can develop; providing care for these individuals is a major goal of the Global Programme to Eliminate LF. Methods of locating these patients, knowing their true number and thus providing care for them, remains a challenge for national medical systems, particularly when the endemic zone is a large urban area. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPLE FINDINGS: A health community-led door-to-door survey approach using the SMS reporting tool MeasureSMS-Morbidity was used to rapidly collate and monitor data on LF patients in real-time (location, sex, age, clinical condition) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania...

Lymphoedema Network Wales was developed in 2011, after receiving a £1 million recurring investment from the Welsh Government to implement its Lymphoedema Strategy. This article describes the creation of the network and the importance of capturing performance data. It will also provide information on the three programmes of work, covering service development, education and research, and innovations and technology. Within Wales, the focus of lymphoedema service delivery is on 'prudent health care', working with patients for patients and only doing what is necessary to gain a good result...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the present study was to analyse the performance of non-contrast MR lymphography for the classification of primary lower limb lymphoedema in 121 consecutive patients with 187 primary lower limb lymphoedemas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 121 consecutive patients with clinically diagnosed primary lower limb lymphoedema underwent non-contrast MR lymphography with a free-breathing 3D fast spin-echo sequence with a very long TR/TE (4000/884 ms). MR examinations were retrospectively reviewed for severity of lymphoedema (absent, mild, moderate, severe) and characteristics of inguinal lymph nodes and iliac and inguinal lymphatic trunks graded as aplasic (no lymph nodes or lymphatic trunks), hypoplasic (less lymph nodes or lymphatic trunks), normal and hyperplasic (more lymph nodes or more and/or dilated trunks)...

Chronic lymphoedema is a disease caused by a congenital or acquired damage to the lymphatic system and characterized by complex chains of pathophysiologic events such as lymphatic fluid stasis, chronic inflammation, lymphatic vessels impairment, adipose tissue deposition and fibrosis. These events seem to maintain and reinforce themselves through a positive feedback loop: regardless of the initial cause of lymphatic stasis, the dysfunctional adipose tissue and its secretion products can worsen lymphatic vessels' function, aggravating lymph leakage and stagnation, which can promote further adipose tissue deposition and fibrosis, similar to what may happen in obesity...

BACKGROUND: Erysipelas and cellulitis (hereafter referred to as 'cellulitis') are common bacterial skin infections usually affecting the lower extremities. Despite their burden of morbidity, the evidence for different prevention strategies is unclear. OBJECTIVES: To assess the beneficial and adverse effects of antibiotic prophylaxis or other prophylactic interventions for the prevention of recurrent episodes of cellulitis in adults aged over 16. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the following databases up to June 2016: the Cochrane Skin Group Specialised Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, Embase, and LILACS...

BACKGROUND: There is very limited data available on the prevalence of Bancroftian filariasis in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). Considerable attempts to eliminate the disease had occurred in the Pacific region by the year 2003, and the prevalence in FSM was thought to be sufficiently low that the region was considered non-endemic. However, a survey conducted in 2003 on an isolated atoll of FSM, Satawal Island, challenged that assumption. METHODS: Participants on Satawal Island were recruited and their blood tested for Wuchereria bancrofti antigen by the filariasis immunochromatographic test (ICT) card and circulating microfilaria by Knott's concentration technique...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to propose a magnetic resonance imaging acquisition and analysis protocol that uses image segmentation to measure and depict fluid, fat, and muscle volumes in breast cancer-related lymphoedema (BCRL). This study also aims to compare affected and control (unaffected) arms of patients with diagnosed BCRL, providing an analysis of both the volume and the distribution of the different tissue components. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The entire arm was imaged with a fluid-sensitive STIR and a 2-point 3-dimensional T1W gradient-echo-based Dixon sequences, acquired in sagittal orientation and covering the same imaging volume...

BACKGROUND: Fabry disease (FD) is a treatable multisystem disease caused by a defect in the alpha-galactosidase gene. Ocular signs of FD, including corneal verticillata, are among the earliest diagnostic findings. Conjunctival lymphangiectasia (CL) has not previously been associated with FD. METHODS: We examined the eyes of a cohort of 13 adult patients, eight men and five women, with documented classic FD, all treated with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham between February 2014 and April 2015...

Angiosarcoma is a rare, aggressive subtype of soft-tissue sarcoma with a propensity for local recurrence and metastasis associated with a generally poor prognosis, unless diagnosed early. Given the vascular endothelial cell origin of angiosarcoma, tumours may develop in essentially any organ; however, there is a predilection for the skin where half of all tumours arise, increasing in prevalence with age. The most common risk factors are chronic lymphoedema and history of radiation. We review the most important radiological findings along the spectrum of angiosarcoma from head to toe throughout the body, including uncommon and rare locations...

The Transforming Cancer Services Team (TCST) in London has produced comprehensive commissioning guidance for commissioners to improve the commissioning of lymphoedema services for people living with and beyond cancer. The guidance identifies how services are commissioned in London, sets out what good looks like and recommends how it can be achieved. The guidance was developed with the support of a task and finish group and was informed by telephone interviews with seven GP commissioners. A comprehensive mapping of specialist services was undertaken and has shown shortfalls in commissioning processes and significant gaps in provision across London...

This clinical review article on the combined use of JOBST FarrowWrap and Cutimed® Sorbion® Sachet XL uses a case study methodology to demonstrate how effective this approach is in managing superficial ulceration and/or lymphorrhea in the presence of chronic oedema and lymphoedema. The blend of these symptoms causes significant physical and psychosocial issues for patients and is highly labour and resource intensive. However, there is often inadequate treatment choice leading to protracted input by nurses and delayed or failed healing...

The use of velcro compression wrapping devices in the management of lymphoedema and chronic oedema is not a new concept. Wraps have been available for many years and are being used widely in clinic and community settings where bandaging or traditional compression garments are not suitable. Furthermore, they are becoming more common when treating venous disease, patients with wounds and lipoedema. The aim of this article is to introduce the reader and clinician to the new Haddenham easywrap and to demonstrate why it is different to any other velcro wrapping device available...
