Randomized trial of decongestive
lymphatic therapy for the treatment of lymphedema in women with breast cancer.
Could Kinesio tape replace the bandage in decongestive
lymphatic therapy for breast-cancer-related lymphedema?
Rebound swelling of the mucosa increases nasal congestion after the decongestive
effect of the drug has disappeared.
Early chapters cover the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the lymphatic system, and later chapters explain manual lymph drainage (the Vodder technique), complete decongestive
therapy, and other treatment modalities.
physiotherapy is the 'mainstay' intervention for lymphatic insufficiency comprising manual lymph drainage, in selected cases intermittent pneumatic compression, multilayered compression bandaging with appropriate padding, exercise, and meticulous skin care (Consensus Document of the International Society for Lymphology 2003).
therapy (CDT) is the recommended treatment for lymphedema and is performed in two stages.
effect of statutes of repose remains highly contentious, (213) although, in abstract, statutes of repose logically result in fewer jury trials and lower judicial administrative and transactional costs.
Treatment can include complete decongestive
therapy, which involves manual lymph drainage, multi-layer stretch compression bandaging, exercise, skin care, education, and elastic compression garments (Lacovara & Yoder, 2006; NLN, 2006).
Physiotherapie complexe decongestive

In 1975 Foldi (1998) updated MLD proposing Complex Decongestive
Physiotherapy (CDP) as a new way to treat lymphoedema (Foldi, 1998).
Treatment for the condition, as with general lymphedema, involves combined decongestive
therapy consisting of compressive bandaging and manual lymph drainage, but this treatment approach can prove very problematic in gynecologic lymphedema.
The massage action is often combined with other elements of complex decongestive
therapy, which can include dietary changes, skin and nail care to prevent infection, therapeutic exercise, special compression sleeves stockings, and other garments, and lightbeam generators to stimulate the lymphatic system.
