In this

a clear and accessible introduction to the circulatory and
lymphatic systems, the disturbances that lead to lymphedema and related conditions,
and the most effective treatments. Covering key areas from anatomy,
physiology, and pathology, to diagnosis, evaluation, hands-on therapeutic
interventions, and practice management, this new edition is a complete and
essential handbook for lymphedema management.

    studies in the U.S., and 13 international contributors

    exercises, and skin care
  • New sections on genetics and imaging, surgical and
    pharmaceutical options, compression strategies for wounds and limb paralysis,
    management of the morbidly obese, truncal and genital lymphedema, cancer
    rehabilitation, and much more
  • Expanded coverage of bandaging and taping
    techniques for the upper and lower extremities, compression garment selection
