This summit focusing on lymphedema following cancer therapy was held during the 7th International Symposium on Cancer Metastasis through the Lymphovascular System. It was unique for the inclusion of patients with lymphedema joining physicians, therapists, healthcare professionals, and researchers to highlight what is known and more importantly what is unknown about the current state of research and treatment in the United States. The session opened with an introduction to lymphedema and then explored the incidence of multiple cancer-related lymphedemas, imaging tools and techniques useful for the diagnosis of lymphatic system abnormalities, and the new findings concerning the genetics of cancer-related lymphedema...

BACKGROUND: Facial edema is a common complication after neck dissection and/or chemoradiotherapy for head and neck cancer. Edema subsides spontaneously in most cases but sometimes persists, in which case surgical intervention is required. We report a case of severe facial edema that showed significant improvement upon lymphovenous anastomosis (LVA). METHODS: A 66-year-old man with oral floor cancer developed progressive facial lymphedema after tumor resection, bilateral neck dissections, chemoradiotherapy, and fibular and rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap transfer...

Supermicrosurgery, a technique of dissection and anastomosis of small vessels ranging from 0.3 to 0.8 mm, has revolutionized the fields of lymphedema treatment and soft tissue reconstruction. The technique offers several distinct benefits to microsurgeons, including the ability to manipulate small vessels that were previously inaccessible, and to minimize donor-site morbidity by dissecting short pedicles in a suprafascial plane. Thus, supermicrosurgery has become increasingly popular in recent years, and its applications have greatly expanded since it was first introduced 20 years ago...

Lymphedema most commonly occurs after cancer treatment and can affect limbs and genitalia. Genital lymphedema (GL) is a rare condition and can be disabling psychologically and physically. It often occurs along with lower extremity lymphedema (LEL). Conservative and physiologic reconstructive surgery such as lymphaticovenous anastomosis (LVA) offer good treatment options for LEL. GL however remains a reconstructive dilemma. The most effective surgical therapies in advanced GL are still debulking procedures in properly selected patients...

Adrenomedullin (AM), a member of the calcitonin peptide superfamily, is a peptide involved in both the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases and circulatory homeostasis. Its receptor, calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CLR), associates with an accessory protein, receptor activity-modifying protein (RAMP). Depending upon which the three RAMP isoforms (RAMP1-3) it interacts with, CLR functions as a receptor for AM or other calcitonin family peptides. AM knockout mice (-/-) died mid-gestation due to abnormalities in vascular development...

Lymphedema is the result of an alteration of the lymphatic drainage, and its most common worldwide cause is filariasis. In our practice usually is associated to neoplasic, inflammatory and granulomatous processes, radiotherapy, hydroelectrolytic disbalances, and idiopathic. It can affect any part of the body, including the penis and scrotum. The genital lymphedema is a rare presentation, it corresponds to 0.6% of lymphedema. However, causes serious functional, social and emotional limitations for the patient...
