Therapy Update Cases Presented

Therapy Update Toronto June 2022


Dr. Larysa Bondalevich gave an excellent and thorough presentation on Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue Diseases (Adipofascial Disorders).

 

Sondra Willis OT gave an interesting and sometimes humourus presentation on Lipedema: European vs US Consensus statements.

 

Koby Blanchfield gave a short presentation of research summary and case presentation, “In Support of MLD: a Clinician’s Perspective”

 

CASE STUDY PRESENTATIONS

 

Nadine Maraj-Nyiri RMT: presentation with a 60 year old client who has primary lymphedema, since the age of 18, and has more recently had a traumatic injury to the leg. Lively discussion ensued about the use of deep oscillation machine (Hivimat) to keep the tissue in the affected leg soft, reducing fibrosis, without focus on reduction.

 

Karen Kingsley RMT: presentation of a 49 year old client who has had Meniere’s for the last 20 years. During COVID, she had a flare up with nausea, dizziness. Karen’s treatment plan was using treatment of the nape of the neck, full neck (supine), ear specials, for 60 minutes/1x week. After the first 60 minute treatment , the patient felt spent and exhausted. After 6 treatments, the nausea was gone and dizziness was reduced. The patient then went on vacation, and had a flare up again. Karen was going to be seeing this client for more treatments.

 

Jennifer Plourde RMT: presentation of a 29 year old client with primary lymphedema and several co-morbidities, including delayed developmental ability, epilepsy, incontinence. 2 years ago, this client developed extreme bilateral leg swelling with weeping legs. In the last year, the whole body became very swollen, and the MD referred the client for therapy. The client had been struggling with the compression wraps. Jennifer asked the therapists attending, for suggestions.

 

Susan Shipton RMT: presentation was about a primary lymphedema client who had reduction with Coban and then started velcro wraps. However, the bilateral feet had extreme swelling, which could not be contained with the wraps. The toes were at risk of disappearing and the concern was the risk of nail infection.

 

Stephanie Webb RMT: presentation of a 63 year old female with lipedema since her late teens. The client is active with swimming and had some weight reduction with a keto diet. The client went to Germany for WAL liposuction, for arms, legs and buttocks. Over the course of 5 weeks, she wore compression for 24 hrs/day, before not using compression.

 

Nicole Dahl RMT: presented a client who had treatment with chemo and radiation for throat cancer, with the resultant swelling above the clavicle to the jaw. MLD treatment focused on redirecting fluid, using the occipital sequence (with no direct terminus) and stimulating the axillae, before directing from sternum to axilla. After 3 treatments (2 weeks between first and second treatment, and the 3rd treatment was one week after the second treatment) showed significant reduction (2cm) when before and after measurements were compared.

 


CASE STUDY PRESENTATIONS:


Nancy Ali RMT: presentation of a 60 year old client with left arm and thorax lymphedema following treatment of breast cancer and carpel tunnel surgery. Volume reduction was achieved however, this case illustrated the impact of fixed income on selection of treatment plan. This ultimately meant restricted treatment time and frequency. The client will be applying to the LAO compassion fund.


Amanda Podolinski RMT: Presentation of 60 year old client with right axilla swelling and swelling over the right pectorals. CDT: 3 treatments the first week (the swelling softened) followed by 5 treatments/week for another two weeks. The use of channel foam and a sports bra along with taping was discussed in relation to thorax swelling.


Jane Mical RMT: presentation of a 76 year old primary lymphedema client who had a negative reaction to statin drugs. After 6 hours rest, the reaction abated. Coban bandaging was tried, but was too itchy to tolerate. Short stretch bandaging was used for two days and then the client was able to fit into their shoes


Allison Luther OT on behalf of herself and her colleague, Ivy Rose Juan BSc, OT:

A case study providing rural outreach to a 51 year old male with scrotal hydrocele, who weighed 600 pounds, and was 4 hours away from Thunder Bay. Allison advocated for him, and he was flown into the hospital rehab by military plane. The therapists used short stretch bandaging attempting to reduce the scrotal swelling which was the size of a very large watermelon, with the penis inverted. Bandaging was not successful, as the patient could not toilet and declined a catheter. They then used Edema Wear size XL, which worked well, as nurses could reapply after toileting, and within 2 weeks he had reduced to a size small. He was measured for a Juzo scrotal support via video call with Juzo., and discharged to his home community with limited support. Unfortunately, the patient could not don and doff the scrotal support himself and declined local PSW support. Rural living has limited his success.


Lymph Taping Classes in Toronto and Vancouver 2024

3 Years in the making and we finally got Froukje Potijk in from the Netherlands. We are now planning on Taping for 2024 with Vancouver's Denise Drisdelle teaching the classes.

Get into a class now while there is still space. Shooting for June 2024 in Toronto and Vancouver.

Announcing newly designated LE&RN Comprehensive and Network Centers of Excellence

Dear LE&RN Community,

It is with great pride in our lymphatic community that we announce these newly designated LE&RN Referral Network, Surgery, Surgery Network and Conservative Care Centers of Excellence in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Lymphatic Diseases. The following 5 institutions now join our current list of 45 Centers around the globe, for a total of 50 Centers dedicated to improving the lives of all those living with lymphatic diseases. The newly designated Centers of Excellence are:

Referral Network of Excellence (all services provided within the institution and/or nearby collaborating care providers):
  • University of Miami Health Services – Miami, Florida
Surgery Centers of Excellence (all surgical and follow-up services provided within the same institution and its affiliates within close geographical proximity):
  • Fondazione Policlinico Universitario - Agostino Gemelli IRCCS – Rome, Italy
  • Santa Creu i Sant Pau - Clinica Planas – Barcelona, Spain 
Surgery Network Center of Excellence (all surgical and follow-up services provided within the institution and/or nearby collaborating care providers):
  • Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center – Jacksonville, Florida
Conservative Care Center of Excellence (all conservative care treatment services provided within the same institution and its affiliates within close geographical proximity):
  • Sanwari Bai Surgical Center – New Delhi, India

The Global Oversight Committee continues to take on the challenge of rigorously vetting applications to guarantee compliance with strict standards. Led by Professor Peter Mortimer (St. George's, University of London, UK) and Melissa Aldrich, Ph.D. (UT Health, TX), the Oversight Committee includes nineteen additional lymphatic disease experts from Sweden, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia and the United States. We thank them for this incredible service to the community.

The LE&RN Centers of Excellence website contains links to all these institutions as well as more information about the program and standards. We welcome hearing from patient advocates who utilize the services of these institutions and who would be willing to serve on Affiliate Boards which will work with LE&RN and the Institutions on standards compliance and advancement in care.

You can help by completing the patient survey at LymphaticNetwork.org/COEsurvey after your interaction with a COE and offering your time to an Affiliate Board by emailing us at COE@LymphaticNetwork.org.

Beginning in mid-November 2022, we will be accepting Letters of Intent from institutions interested in applying for consideration as future LE&RN Centers of Excellence.

It is a good day for the lymphatic disease community. I thank and congratulate all who have played a role in this achievement, including LE&RN Supporting Members and donors. These milestones would not be possible without that support.
 
Sincerely,

William Repicci
President & CEO, LE&RN

 Information on Truncal Lymphedema: Click here to read

Edema is the medical term for swelling. Body parts swell from injury or inflammation. It can affect a small area or the entire body.
Edema | COR Medical Group


Lymphedema is swelling caused by excess lymphatic fluid (lymph) collecting in the body's soft tissues, usually in the arms or legs. It can affect one or both sides of the body. This is a chronic condition for which there is no cure. Treatment methods are available to manage it. 



If you suspect that you have one of these conditions, contact your physician as soon as possible.
 

When Swelling, Edema or Lymphedema affect the FEET, it may be difficult to find footwear that supports and fits correctly.

Paradigm Medical Offers Exceptional Solutions for These Conditions!


*Classic Slide*
PSL600 By Pedors

EXTRA DEPTH
EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA WIDE
GREAT RANGE OF SIZES 

 

Designed for people with VERY swollen feet, or who may wear braces, orthotic devices, or bandages.

Morbid Obesity, Venous Disease and today’s treatments for cancer can lead to a compromised lymphatic system and severe swelling/lymphdema in the legs including the feet. It can be difficult for patients and healthcare providers to find the correct footwear to manage these specific needs.

Paradigm Medical is pleased to offer the 
Pedors Classic Slide.


This shoe allows the foot to be placed entirely on the footbed while the long adjustable touch closure straps contour the foot for a customized fit.

For proper size selection, start with your normal shoe size (by length), ensuring that the specific shoe has plenty of depth and a deep toe-box to accommodate bandages and/or swelling in the foot, but also in the toes. The other important measurement is foot girth because the swelling and/or bandages can caused the foot to change in size and volume.

DOWNLOAD the Pedors Shoe Fitting Guide HERE!
Pedors Classic Slide PSL600 - Available in 6E width only

MEN'S SIZES:  5 to 15 (not available in half-sizes)
WOMEN'S SIZES: 7 to 17 (not available in half sizes)

The Pedors Classic Slide is only currently available in the 6E (XXX-W) width, designed for people with very swollen feet. The adjustable velcro strap allows to adjust for girth and to secure the slide to the foot.

FEATURES:  Pedoprene™ Stretch Upper, Touch Closure Strap(s), Removable Insert for Custom Orthotics, Wide Midfoot, Sturdy and Supportive, Pedoprene upper panel can be heat molded.
