PURPOSE: Besides pain, myofascial dysfunctions may contribute to the presence of upper limb impairments such as impaired range of motion, decreased strength, lymphedema, and altered postures and kinematics. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of myofascial therapy in addition to a standard physical therapy program for treatment of upper limb dysfunctions in breast cancer survivors. METHODS: Fifty women treated for a unilateral breast cancer with pain and myofascial dysfunctions at the upper limb region...

Secondary lymphedema, a life-long complication of cancer treatment, currently has no cure. Lymphedema patients have decreased quality of life and recurrent infections with treatments limited to palliative measures. Accumulating evidence indicates that T cells play a key role in the pathology of lymphedema by promoting tissue fibrosis and inhibiting lymphangiogenesis. Here using mouse models, we show that topical therapy with tacrolimus, an anti-T-cell immunosuppressive drug, is highly effective in preventing lymphedema development and treating established lymphedema...

There are reported cases of diphencyprone used in treating cutaneous metastases of melanoma. Here, we report a patient with previous primary melanoma on his left back treated with surgical excision and lymphadenectomy, followed by radiotherapy for the recurrent tumor on the primary site. Despite radiotherapy and treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib, in-transit metastases have developed and topical diphencyprone was applied to these metastases. Six weeks later, the patient developed fever and a spreading erythematous tender indurated plaque covering the left side of the body including axillae, back, and flank, clinically suggestive of cellulitis...

[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of deep-breathing and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching exercises on upper limb lymphedema in stroke patients. [Subjects and Methods] The study consisted of 10 patients with lymphedema that had occurred after stroke. Neurodevelopmental treatment was applied in the same manner as that used for the existing treatment. The subjects performed deep-breathing and stretching exercises three times per week for 4 weeks (12 sessions total)...

BACKGROUND: Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a systemic disease that can present with cutaneous lesions with or without internal involvement, mostly caused by infection with human herpesvirus-8. The treatment options include surgical excision, cryotherapy, radiotherapy, intralesional chemotherapy, laser, and elastic stockings for the prevention of lymphedema. OBJECTIVE: This article presents 7 cases with classic KS treated with the long-pulse neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser...

: 267 Background: Breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) is a known morbidity from treatment, and yet published estimates of its incidence are highly variable. Typically, a single volume measurement is recorded and the degree of intra-rater variability undefined. A threshold 5% limb volume change over time is used to define "mild lymphedema." Therefore, small variations in volume measurements could substantially lead to over or under-diagnosis of BRCL. Gage R&R is a measurement systems analysis tool that quantifies the amount of variability induced in measurements by the measurement system itself and compares this to the total variability observed...

Morbihan disease (MD) is rosacea-like disease characterized by persistent lymphedema on the upper half of the face. Currently, there is no established standard treatment for MD. Recently, MD has been reported to be associated with the infiltration of mast cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of treatment response and mast cell infiltration in MD. We report four cases of MD that were successfully treated with long-term oral doxycycline therapy.

: Abstracts Background: Arm lymphedema after breast cancer surgery affects women both from physical and psychological points of view. Lymphedema leads to adipose tissue deposition. Liposuction and controlled compression therapy (CCT) reduces the lymphedema completely. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty female patients with arm lymphedema were followed for a 1-year period after surgery. The 36-item short-form health survey (SF-36) was used to assess health-related quality of life (HRQoL)...

Previous studies have reported the benefits of beginning rehabilitation immediately after breast cancer surgery for improving motor function. However, most studies have not evaluated the long-term struggles patients face after hospital discharge in resuming their previous activities and socialparticipation. Furthermore, the intervention methods and effects of rehabilitation for such activities have not been evaluated. We investigated the effectiveness of postoperative physical therapy for upperlimb impairments after breast cancer treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Lymphedema is one of the most serious complications following breast cancer treatment. While many risk factors are well described the role of seroma formation has recently produced mixed results. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate if seroma is a risk factor for development of lymphedema in one of the largest retrospective cohort studies. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We included all patients with unilateral breast cancer treated in the period of 2008-2014. Data regarding treatment and breast cancer characteristics were retrieved from the national breast cancer registry...

Swelling is the most common symptom of extremities lymphedema. Clinical evaluation and laboratory analysis were conducted after far infrared radiation (FIR) treatment on the main four components of lymphedema: fluid, fat, protein, and hyaluronan. Far infrared radiation is a kind of hyperthermia therapy with several and additional benefits as well as promoting microcirculation flow and improving collateral lymph circumfluence. Although FIR therapy has been applied for several years on thousands of lymphedema patients, there are still few studies that have reported the biological effects of FIR on lymphatic tissue...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of hypofractionated radiation therapy (HFRT) of the breast/chest wall and regional nodes on overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS), locoregional control and on treatment-related toxicity in patients with breast cancer and nodal involvement. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Two hundred fifty-seven patients treated between October 2009 and June 2011 with hypofractionated locoregional radiation therapy (42 Gy in 15 fractions) were retrospectively reviewed, 51 (19...

Lymphedema is one of the most common complications after breast cancer surgery. There are many diagnostic tools for lymphedema, but no standard method yet exists. Progressive Resistance Exercise (PRE) is expected to improve lymphedema without additional swelling. This study showed the therapeutic effects of PRE on lymphedema by using ultrasonography to measure the change in thickness of the muscle and subcutaneous tissue. The thickness of subcutaneous tissue decreased more in the PRE group than in the non-PRE group...

Inadequate peripheral lymphedema screening is a persistent gap in the provision of quality survivorship care at many breast cancer centers. Lymphedema should be identified and treated during the subclinical stage, when it is more likely reversible. The purpose of this project was to integrate a screening process for patients with breast cancer at risk for lymphedema, using bioimpedance spectroscopy via the L-Dex®, in a breast cancer center. A protocol was developed that included specific criteria for early patient referral to physical therapy...

REVIEW
Catherine L Ly, Raghu P Kataru, Babak J Mehrara
Lymphedema results from lymphatic insufficiency leading to a progressive inflammatory process that ultimately manifests as discomfort, recurrent infections, and, at times, secondary malignancy. Collectively, these morbidities contribute to an overall poor quality of life. Although there have been recent advances in microsurgical interventions, a conservative palliative approach remains the mainstay of treatment for this disabling disease. The absence of a cure is due to an incomplete understanding of the pathophysiological changes that result in lymphedema...
