Authors: Mayrovitz HN, Yzer JA Abstract Based on preliminary observations that topical cooling appeared to soften lymphedematous and fibrotic tissue, our goal was to systematically and quantitatively evaluate this effect. For this purpose, topical cooling was used as part of treatment of lymphedematous and fibrotic skin of women with breast cancer related lymphedema (BCRL) and localized fibrosis. Skin tissue hardness was assessed via the force required to indent skin to 4 mm (F4.0) and 1.3 mm (F1.3) and skin water was assessed by measurements of tissue dielectric constant (TDC). Measurements were done before coolin...
