Lymphedema / edema

A post-treatment lymphedema of the upper limb in a breast cancer case is the most frequent complication of the cobaltotherapy.

Post-surgery skin or lymphatic complications and loco-regional neoplasic recurrence often reveal that phenomenon.

Two studies have to be carried out to get a precise analysis on that point.

  • The former scans trace of evolution of a carcinoid disease
  • The latter takes stock of the possible post-radic associated auxillary lesions (vascular and plexal, even thoracic).

The treatment focuses mostly on lymphatic drainage, whereas the lymphangiric pushes are treated by an adapted antibiotherapy.

The prevention of these pushes and a lymphedema is crucial. That screening is based on the patient's information on the risks of upper limb traumatism, when a mere wound drives to a severe antibiotherapy.

Venous thrombosis

In case of main varicose veins or postphlebitic disease, surgical treatment of chronic venous insufficiency of the lower limbs shows risks:

  • venous thrombosises
  • cutaneous necroses or scars disunion in the interventions like Lindon or Felder?s.

Besides, the reconstructive surgery of the deep venous plexus was also proposed for the treatment of the postphlebitic disease, acting on valvular repair or interposition of a valvular segment.

Up to now, in patient preparing or postoperative care, the most promising results have been obtained by a specific physiotherapy process associating manual lymphatic drainage with Pressodermie®.

Lymphatic drainage as edema reducing agent

Among the existing treatments of edema or lymphedema, the one of sequential pneumatic compressions associated with the flexible elastic applications seems to be the most successful and the least risky.

The results obtained with the most recent therapy equipment induced the specialists of medical centers to estimate that those good results could be improved by ensuring the follow-up of the treatment with additional sessions at home.

The goal was actually to launch a smaller and easy to use apparatus providing similar effects to the therapist's treatment in medical center.
