Wound care and Lymphedema

Lymphedema is abnormal swelling caused by a lymphatic system. It is typically found within the arms or legs and may also have an effect on the trunk, face, or genitalia. Primary lymphedema is a congenital problem caused by a decrease within the range or size of the lymphatic vessels. Secondary lymphedema results from harm caused by surgery, radiotherapy, injury, infection, venous insufficiency, scar tissue, cancer and inflammation. It is a result of an accumulation of protein-rich fluid in superficial tissues. Early stages of dropsy could also be quickly reduced by easy elevation of the limb. While not correct treatment, however, the protein-rich swelling causes a progressive hardening of the affected tissues, together with recurrent cellulitis and probably fungal infection. In general, the foremost severe wounds occur within the most advanced stages of lymphedema. Correct identification, early detection and acceptable treatment will effectively slow the progression of lymphedema.
