Lymphology therapeutic indications
Edema is the main manifestation of a pathology of the lymphatic system. It is an excessive accumulation of interstitial (or intercellular) liquid.
These edema can have different origins: congenital, parasitic (filariose) or infectious (eresypelas or erysipelas) ones, factors going with venous insufficiencies (heavy legs, cellulite, varicose veins, post-traumatic (sprain), with surgery (ablation of lymphatic ganglions), or with radiotherapy against cancer, etc.
All edema should be diagnosed from the very first appearance and their treatment should be started as soon as possible in order to prevent these edema to organise themselves, to form fibrosis and to get hard. At the stage of fibrosis, the treatment of edema become more difficult.
