BACKGROUND Upper limb lymphedema is a possible consequence of the treatment for breast cancer. Accurate detection of swelling is important in implementing appropriate treatment. Currently used diagnostic cut-offs for excess volume have been chosen for ease of use and are not based on normative differences. The aim of this study, therefore, was to determine the normal inter-limb variance for healthy older women and identify statistically-based diagnostic cut-offs for both circumference and… CONTINUE READING
