OBJECTIVE: Lymphoedema of the extremities is a widespread pathological condition that mostly occurs as a complication of cancer resections, especially in women. Conventional therapy refers to conservative and physiotherapeutic approaches. Surgical strategies have been widely reported in the literature and are still challenging. Part of this literature focuses on the supra microsurgical lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) technique. LVA is characterized by a high success rate, minimal invasivity and broad indications...

INTRODUCTION: Polymastia and polythelia may be asymptomatic or cause pain, restriction of arm movement, milk discharge, cosmetic problems or anxiety. Cosmesis is the main indication for surgical excision of accessory breasts in axilla. In addition it also confirms the diagnosis and allays the patient's fear of harbouring a malignancy. AIM: To evaluate the presentation of symptoms, investigations required for diagnosis and the management to improve the treatment protocols in patients with breast diseases...

Non-purulent cellulitis is an acute bacterial infection of the dermal and subdermal tissues that is not associated with purulent drainage, discharge or abscess. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis (SRMA) was to identify and appraise all controlled observational studies that have examined risk factors for the development of non-purulent cellulitis of the leg (NPLC). A systematic literature search of electronic databases and grey literature sources was performed in July 2015. The Newcastle-Ottawa Scale (NOS) was used to assess methodological quality of included studies...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have demonstrated an association between immediate autologous or implant-based breast reconstruction and a reduced incidence of lymphoedema. However, few of these have focused specifically on whether the reconstruction method affects the development of lymphoedema. The study evaluated the potential impact of breast reconstruction modality on the incidence of lymphoedema. METHODS: Outcomes of women with breast cancer who underwent mastectomy and immediate reconstruction using an autologous flap or a tissue expander/implant between 2008 and 2013 were reviewed...

Bites from the adder, Vipera berus, are well known for causing local and general toxicity. We report a case of a 63-year-old female who was bitten in one of her lower extremities. She was seen twice in the emergency department with symptoms and signs consistent with severe envenomation. Despite treatment with antihistamines and corticosteroids the oedema persisted. A lymphoscintigraphy was performed showing dermal backflow in the right leg, confirming the diagnosis of lymphoedema. Based on the present case report and review of the literature antivenom therapy should be considered more actively...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of end-stage lymphoedema of the leg is challenging, especially when conservative treatment fails and there is a large volume difference between the affected and unaffected legs. Circumferential suction-assisted lipectomy (CSAL) has been described as a treatment option for end-stage lymphoedema of the leg. Here, the long-term results of CSAL in end-stage primary and secondary lymphoedema of the leg were analysed. METHODS: This was a descriptive study of patients treated with CSAL for unilateral chronic irreversible lymphoedema of the leg...

Lymphoedema can be classified into primary and secondary. Primary lymphoedema arise in patients where the cause is not known. Secondary lymphoedema are those in which the lymph system has been damaged by some well recognised pathological process, such as extensive malignancy, filariasis, radiation etc. The changes may occur either in the lymph node, or in lymph vessels or both. The clinical evolution and the prognosis of the oedema in the limb involved will depend on the extension and evolution of these lesions...

There are many intermittent pneumatic compression devices available for use in the management and adjunct treatment of lymphatic, venous and arterial disease. This article discusses the development of a new advanced pneumatic compression device, the LymphFlow Advance, which can perform focussed treatment on the lymphoedematous area using a variety of different cycles. Case studies with therapist and patient feedback are used to demonstrate the use of the LymphFlow Advance in the lymphoedema clinic, with a discussion of the evidence to underpin recommended treatment regimes...

The aim of this study was to gain a comprehensive insight into the use of night-time compression in the management of lymphoedema in patients who had been suffering from chronic lymphoedema for over 12 months. Data were collected and analysed from 94 patients, across five countries. Understanding user characteristics provided insight and understanding into how night-time compression regimens were initiated, products were used and benefits to the patient were reported. In addition to gaining an insight into user habits and night-time compression benefits, unmet needs were also identified...

Lipoedema is a chronic progressive adipose disorder that affects mainly women and presents as symmetrical enlargement of the buttocks and legs. It is commonly misdiagnosed as obesity or lymphoedema, but careful assessment will reveal a disproportionate enlargement below the waist which is resistant to dieting, sparing of the feet, legs are tender or painful to touch and bruise easily, there is occasional orthostatic oedema, and there is often significant psychological morbidity. Lipoedema is a oestrogen-regulated condition with onset around puberty in 78% of women, and there is often a strong family history...

PURPOSE: It is an established fact that post-operative (p.o.) soft-tissue swelling and lymphoedema after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have a major influence on the p.o. early functional outcome. Kinesio taping has a proven clinical effect in increasing lymph drainage. Despite the decades of experience gained and the assumed positive effects, hardly any investigations have been conducted to date on the influence of Kinesio taping on the p.o. healing process after TKA. The objective of the present study was to test the hypothesis that Kinesio taping used as a lymph application leads to a reduction of p...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ano-genital granulomatosis is a rare chronic granulomatous condition of the skin that causes lymphoedema of the external genitalia. There is a reported association with Crohn's disease. Mechanisms of disease, and optimal methods of treatment are poorly understood. METHODS: A retrospective case note review of 25 male patients with ano-genital granulomatosis presenting with genital lymphoedema was performed to determine the clinical and histopathological features of this condition and its relationship to intestinal Crohn's disease...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrent cellulitis is a frequent and challenging complication of lymphoedema. British Lymphology Society cellulitis guidelines state that decongestive lymphatic therapy reduces the frequency of cellulitis attacks, but do not mention the effect of surgical interventions. This systematic review aims to assess whether surgical interventions for lymphoedema reduce the frequency of attacks of cellulitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Embase, Medline, and the Cochrane database were searched for relevant articles from database inception to January 2016...

It is vital to tell patients about potential long-term side effects after cancer diagnosis. Thousands of people who have already had the devastation of a cancer diagnosis might be completely unaware they are at increased risk of developing serious illnesses such as heart disease, lymphoedema or fertility issues.

Many neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) affect the skin, causing considerable disability, stigma, and exacerbation of poverty. However, there has been relatively little investment into laboratory research, epidemiology, diagnostic tools or management strategies to control tropical skin disease. Integration may advance the control of skin disease across a range of domains, including mapping, diagnosis, clinical management, and community control measures such as mass drug administration. Examples of successful integration strategies include programs targeting scabies, impetigo, yaws, and diseases causing lymphoedema...
