OBJECTIVE Upper limb lymphedema is a common complication after radical mastectomy in patients with breast cancer. In this study, we examined the efficacy of self-manual lymph drainage (MLD) after modified radical mastectomy for the prevention of upper limb lymphedema, scar formation, or shoulder joint dysfunction in breast cancer patients. METHODS Breast cancer patients scheduled for modified radical mastectomy were randomly apportioned to undergo physical exercise only (PE group, the control… Expand
Long term effects of manual lymphatic drainage and active exercises on physical morbidities, lymphoscintigraphy parameters and lymphedema formation in patients operated due to breast cancer: A clinical trial
TLDR
MLD is as safe and effective as AE in rehabilitation after breast cancer surgery and, in older women, improving muscle strength through AE can prevent lymphedema. Expand
Combining manual lymph drainage with physical exercise after modified radical mastectomy effectively prevents axillary web syndrome
TLDR
MLD in combination with physical exercise is beneficial for preventing AWS and increasing comfort in breast cancer patients after modified radical mastectomy. Expand
Manual Lymph Drainage as a Complex Decongestive Therapy for Upper Limb Lymphedema After Breast Cancer Operation
TLDR
Manual lymph drainage as a complex decongestive therapy for lymphedema after breast cancer operation is safe, effective and thus well worth clinical application. Expand

Does Exercise Have a Preventive Effect on Secondary Lymphedema in Breast Cancer Patients Following Local Treatment - A Systematic Review
TLDR
The partly significant results showed that progressive strength training as well as combined dynamic exercise therapies consisting of physiotherapy, physical therapy, and/or kinesiotherapy are safe and can prevent secondary lymphedema. Expand
Results of home-based modified combined decongestive therapy in patients with lower extremity lymphedema
TLDR
It is revealed that home-based modified CDT is more effective in reducing extremity edema volume in secondary LEL than primary LEL, and should be an available method for self-management of LEL at all stages. Expand

TLDR
Both treatment groups demonstrated absolute and relative reductions of excess limb volume, and the addition of MLD did not significantly increase the therapeutic response in women with lymphedema after breast cancer. Expand

TLDR
Low stretch compression bandaging is an effective treatment giving volume reduction of slight or moderate arm lymphedema in women treated for breast cancer. Expand

Lymphedema: A Therapeutic Approach in the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Cancer Patients
TLDR
There are two phases of lymphedema treatment: the acute "intensive" phase and the maintenance phase, and the effectiveness of the various components in each phase, as well as the motivation and compliance of the patient, differs. Expand

Quality of Life, Upper Extremity Function and the Effect of Lymphedema Treatment in Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema Patients
TLDR
Upper extremity function was correlated with the age of breast cancer patients and QOL was influenced by M-stage, while Lymphedema treatment was found to be effective in reducing edema in patients with breast cancer related lymphedEMA. Expand

TLDR
MLD is a gentle procedure that does not increase the risk of breast cancer recurrence in patients who develop BCRL, and receiving MLD therapy was not an outcome factor in multivariate analyses. Expand
