Title : A novel technique to manage chronic lymphedema in advanced cancer


Cancer-related secondary lymphedema is a pathological condition that develops following obstruction of the lymphatic system by direct invasion, metastasis, surgical removal, or irradiation of the lymph nodes, resulting in collection of protein rich fluid in any area of body. Most studies on secondary lymphedema has been done on upper limb after breast cancer treatment. Very few studies have actually documented about lower limb edema in gynecologic cancers. Lower limb lymphedema affects persons’ ambulation, skin integrity and body image, thus significantly impeding quality of life. Chronic lymphedema once developed can not be reversed. Our paper reports a novel technique to manage chronic lymphedema in advanced cancer patient. Prospective trials are undergoing.
