The importance of detection of subclinical lymphedema for the prevention of breast cancer-related clinical lymphedema after axillary lymph node dissection; a prospective observational study.

Abstract

PURPOSE Early detection and timely intervention have potential to reduce late-stage lymphedema (LE) in patients with breast cancer undergoing axillary lymph node dissection (ALND). This study aims to determine if detection and early treatment of subclinical LE by using prospective monitoring with bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) can lead to reduced… (More)
