Indirect lymphography by subepidermal infusion of newly developed nonionic, dimeric contrast media (e.g., Iotrolan) opacifies peripheral lymphatics of the skin. Using this method we examined 159 patients with primary and secondary lymphedema, chronic venous insufficiency, and lipedema and compared the findings to normal individuals. A variety of(More)
In 48 patients (16 healthy persons, 16 patients with venous incompetence and 16 patients with phlebographic proved status after thrombosis) the effect of medical compression stockings of different compression pressure (Sigvaris Thrombo, Sigvaris 503, Sigvaris 504) on venous pumping function was studied by foot volumetry. In patients with varicosis and(More)
The most important aim of compression therapy in postthrombotic legs is prevention of dermatosclerosis and ulcus cruris. For the acute stage of leg swelling and for venous ulceration we prefer compression bandages ("therapy phase"). The effect of compression therapy with bandages depend on the material of the used bandages (short or long-stretch bandages),(More)
We report on 366 patients suffering from erysipelas who have been treated in 1977 to 1981. 263 of them had primary infections, 103 showed relapsing erysipelas. In the course of treatment, sex, age, localisation, as well as local terrain factors have been evaluated. Therapy consisted of high dosage antibiotic treatment and correction of the local(More)
Decongestion of chronic lymphedema can be achieved by supportive bandages without elasticity, manual lymph drainage (especially in cases of secondary lymphedema after treatment of cancer), and remedial exercises performed while wearing bandages. Hygienic skin care is necessary to avoid attacks of recurrent erysipelas. In order to preserve the reduction of(More)
To evaluate the deciding diagnostic criteria of indirect lymphography in lymphoedema of the leg, 91 investigations were reviewed. 72 examinations were from lymphoedematous legs as judged by clinical appearance and isotopic lymphography and 19 from healthy legs. After subepidermal infusion of adequate water soluble contrast media (e.g. Jotrolan) in healthy(More)
Iotrolan was used in concentrations of 240 and 300 mg I/ml for indirect lymphography in a total of 70 patients, and permitted a diagnostic evaluation of the peripheral lymphatics in all cases. The contrast quality was found to correlate with the concentration used. The concentration of 300 mg I/ml Iotrolan was judged to provide the better contrast density(More)
