Severe lymphedema of the arm as a potential cause of shoulder trauma

R. Avrahami, E. Gabbay, B. Bsharah, M. Haddad, A. Koren, J. Dahn, A. Zelikovski. (2004) Lymphology, 37, 202-205.
Patients with severe lymphedema and shoulder pain were treated with Lympha Press® and in-clinic MLD. Treatment decreased arm volume by an average of 170 ml, improved arm mobility and dramatically reduced pain.

V. M. MONTORI, S. J. KAVROS, E. E. WALSH, T. W. ROOKE
The aim of this retrospective observational study was to review the use of an intermittent pneumatic compression device on nonhealing wounds in patients with critical limb ischemia at Mayo Clinic Rochester.

Evaluation of sequential intermittent pneumatic compression for filarial lymphedema

Natl Med J India. 2002 Jul-Aug;15(4):192-4. Manjula Y, Kate V, Ananthakrishnan N.
Lympha Press® treatment effectively reduced severe lymphedema caused by lymphatic filariasis, and significantly reduced the incidence of adenolymphangitis in these patients. The effect was not maintained after treatment was discontinued, indicating the need for ongoing therapy.
