LYMPHEDEMA

Lymphedema occurs when there is an underlying mechanical insufficiency of the lymphatic system. The rate of absorption is lower than normal causing and imbalance in the tissues. This results in an accumulation of protein rich fluid in the interstitium causing lymphedema. There are two types of Lymphedema Primary and Secondary. Primary is when there is a development disorder of the lymphatic system. Secondary is when the lymphatic system has been damaged due to a known cause. The most common secondary causes are lymph node dissection, radiation, infection, trauma, or malignancies in the lymphatics.

Conditions treated

Primary Lymphedema:

Two main types of Primary Lymphedema:

  • Meige Type (90-96% of cases)
  • Sporadic onset
  • Mostly starts in feet/ankles and progresses up legs.
  • Congenital but manifests during puberty or later
  • Lymphedema Praecox: Manifests before age 35
  • Lymphedema Tardum: Manifests after age 35
  • Nonne- Milroy Type (4-10 % of cases)
  • Hereditary
  • Present at birth or shortly after
  • Mostly effects lower extremities

In the case of infants, starting MLD treatment and educating the caregiver on ways to encourage lymph drainage outside of treatment is taught. Compression garments and bandaging is available when advised by the physician. When treating children, we start MLD treatment as soon as possible. Children who can verbally communicate, can be bandaged and fitted with compression garments with approval of treating physician. Adults are treated with CDT. The earlier the diagnosis and treatment begins the better prognosis and management will be for the future.

  • Lipedema
  • Trauma related edemas
  • Surgery (pre-operative and post-operative) edemas
  • Sinus congestions and chronic sinusitis
