2. Lymphedema
Simple, straightforward review from Warm Springs Rehabilitation System in Texas.
What is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema can be defined as an accumulation of excessive proteins, edema, chronic inflammation, and fibrosis secondary to the impairment of the lymph vessels. The vessels transport molecules to the venous angle of the neck where the lymph system joins the venous system.
Are there different kinds of Lymphedema?
Yes. Lymphedema can be either primary or secondary lymphedema.
  • Primary lymphedema is usually due to either a congenital absence of, or abnormalities in, lymphatic tissue. It can be hereditary (Milroy Disease), lymphedema praecox (onset during puberty), or lymphedema tarda (onset later in life). Primary lymphedema is more prevalent in females than males.
  • Secondary lymphedema is generally caused by an obstruction or interruption of the lymphatic system, usually caused by malignancies, infection, trauma, excision, or post-radiation fibrosis.
It is not known the true number of persons suffering from lymphedema. It is estimated that the incidences of lymphedema in the United States are as follows :
-Primary Lymphedemia:1-2 million
-Secondary Lymphedemia: 2-3 million
Purpose The goal of Warm Springs Rehabilitation System Lymphedemia Management Program is to improve the overall quality of life for a lymphedema survivor.

8. Trinity Lymphedema Centers - Lymphatic, Swelling, Oxygen, Vessels, Bacteria
Clinics that offer treatment of lymphedema utilizing MLD, compression bandaging, and customfitted compression garments.
Trinity Lymphedema Centers focus on reducing the pain and impairment associated with lymphedema. Through Trinity's complete decongestive physiotherapy, swelling and infectious complications can be minimized.
Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the interstitial tissue, most often in the arm(s) and leg(s). Left untreated, this stagnant, protein-rich fluid causes swelling, reduced oxygen flow, delayed wound healing and increased risk of infection. Lymphedema can develop when lymph nodes or vessels are missing or damaged due to surgery, radiation, or trauma.
Using Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), the therapists at Trinity are able to restore the oxygen transport system in the lymphatic vessels by re-directing the direction of the fluid and reduce the tissue swelling which results in pain and discomfort. Compression bandaging and custom-fitted compression garments help to prevent the limb from refilling with lymphatic fluid and thus maintain lymphedema reduction.
We invite you to learn more about our personalized treatment programs. Trinity Lymphedema Centers offer an on-line chat forum that is monitored by a licensed registered nurse. One of our therapists will be glad to offer helpful suggestions and answer questions or concerns you may have about this condition.

Back to the Table of Contents
A normal lymphatic system consists of blind-end vessels which collect the fluid that bathes and nourish the tissues. In a normal system, this fluid, called lymph , is derived from the arterial side of capillaries, and is returned to the circulation via veins near the neck. Nearly 90% of the water-component in our blood is consistently filtered through the lymphatic system while the remaining 10% is found in the tissues. The purpose of the lymphatic system is to help the body to maintain fluid balance while filtering out waste products. White blood cells and other immune cells congregate in lymph nodes in various parts of the body (notably the armpit and groin region). They help to destroy bacteria, cancerous cells or other wastes that make their way into this lymph fluid. Lymphedema is a swelling in the soft tissues of the limbs, or less often the trunk, caused by the buildup of lymph fluid. This can occur in two ways:
