Managing Patients with Multicausal Edema
and/or Lymphedema

Saturday, May 4, 10:30am – 11:00am
Lymphedema has traditionally been divided purely into primary and secondary types, but clinical experience, especially over the past 20 years, has demonstrated that the majority of lymphedema patients now fall into a category best described as “multi-causal lymphedema,” a category that blurs the lines between primary and secondary lymphedema. Patients with multi-causal lymphedema all share the defining characteristic of obesity. This presentation will discuss how obesity impacts the lymphatic system directly and indirectly and how it increases a person’s risk for lymphedema. Treatment options for multi-causal lymphedema will also be presented.
