About Lymphedema & Hand Clinic

:-

Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of high protein rich fluid in the space between tissues causing inadequate drainage due to damage in lymphatic system.

A healthy adult has approximately 600 -700 lymph nodes. Axiilary lymph nodes dissection & Radiation therapy around axillary lymph nodes area are most causative factor for upper limb lymphedema in among patients with breast cancer.

Lymphedema can occur within days & upto 30 years post treatment but 80 percentage of patients experience onset within 3 years of surgery.

This condition is is slowly progressive without appropriate therapy and this problem is easily manageable with Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT). 

Untreated lymphedema can increase swelling & risk of cellulitis (Skin infection), can lead fibrosis, permanent disfigurement on affected side, chronic ulceration, poor quality of life & in rare case lymphangiosarcoma (0.45 percentage of cases) also.

CDT is multimodel therapy recognized as the gold standard of lymphedema care. 

It has components like - Manual lymph drainage massage (MLD massage), multilayer lymphedema bandaging (MLLB), Compressive stocking, Decongestive exercises & Skin care.

Treatment varies depending upon severity. 

CDT consists of two main phases, Phase I- reductive /intensive phase & phase II- Maintenance phase. 

Upto 80 percentage of limb volume on swollen side can be reduced with in Intensive phase of treatment.
