Lymphedema: Prevention, Treatment and Self-Management
Lymphedema is the swelling that occurs when a blockage in the lymphatic system prevents the lymph fluid in the arm or leg from draining adequately. As the fluid accumulates, the swelling continues. It frequently follows surgery for cancer and is an ongoing challenge for the patient. This talk by Stanley Rockson, MD, director, Stanford Center for Lymphatic and Venous Disorders, focuses on new and emerging treatments for this condition.
