Venous and Lymphatic Journal Club November 2020

Doctors Tom O’Donnell, Steven Dean and Tony Gasparis discuss the practical implications of recent publications on lymphedema (LE) care.

  • Upper- and lower-extremity LE patients are treated differently in the healthcare system.
  • The gold standard for differentiating LE from lipedema is pain.
  • The lymphatics impact a broad range of health conditions and will have a growing role in future therapies.
