In one, the authors attributed the edema to an orbital fracture with sinus communication ; in the other, the authors concluded that the direct pressure of the mask on the face caused venous drainage obstruction and lymphostasis
Patients with lipedema may present two distinct pathophysiological conditions, lymphostasis
and necrosis of fatty tissue.
Pregnancy can result in vulvar edema, lymphostasis
, bacterial colonization which lead to cellulitis, abscess, or necrotizing fasciitis.
Exceeding critical period (8-10 hours) of the thermal anoxia in the vessels of amputated fragments leads to development specific changes manifested during blood circulation restoration in these vessels by microcirculation disturbances (a consequence of endothelium ischemic lesion) and edema of replanted segment tissues (a consequence of increase of vascular wall permeability and lymphostasis

Lymphostasis can occur anywhere in the deep system, leading to serious problems (1).
Unfortunately it is not enough to clear all deep lymphostasis. There are instances when stimulation of the superficial system has to be relied upon, when the deep lymphatic system is blocked (1).
The stockings are designed to prevent and and alleviate Lymphostasis
, the congestion of venous blood and lymph.
As such, once a diagnosis of breast cancer has been made, nearly all patients with invasive breast cancer will undergo axillary dissection. While axillary dissection provides important information about the staging of breast cancer, it also is associated with morbidity such as arm edema (swelling), lymphostasis
and infections of the ipsilateral (same side) extremity.
Others live with a latent phase of the condition known as lymphostasis
; although there is no clinical lymphedema, normal physiology is compromised, and lymph is sluggish or inactive.
