CONCLUSIONS: The TOLF intervention had significant benefits for breast cancer survivors to manage chronic pain, soreness, general bodily pain, arm/hand swelling, heaviness, and impaired limb mobility. The intervention resulted in a 13% reduction (from 40% [24/60] to 27% [16/60]) in proportions of patients who took pain medications compared with the AP control group, which had a 5% increase (from 40% [24/60] to 45% [27/60]). A 12% reduction (from 27% [16/60] to 15% [9/60]) in proportions of patients with ≥5% limb volume differences was found in the TOLF intervention, while a 5% increase in the AP control group (from 40% ...

: Immediate lymphatic reconstruction (ILR) has been shown to be a promising technique for reduction in the risk of developing lymphedema after axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) as part of breast cancer treatment. However, the literature on this topic is minimal. Additional reports of ILR outcomes are needed.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that a multidisciplinary treatment approach involving APA professionals should be employed in the management of BC-related lymphedema to improve patient psychophysical outcomes and QoL.PMID:35025064 | DOI:10.1007/s12282-021-01322-0

CONCLUSION: Structured education of lymphedema is needed to increase the knowledge of HCPs and to enhance their collaboration in multidisciplinary care teams. Improvement of HCPs' knowledge may lead to better outcomes of lymphedema patients' management which are neglected.PMID:35003807 | PMC:PMC8741388 | DOI:10.1155/2021/3806150
