 en Case Report - A simple technique for preoperative reduction of lymphoedema
Robbie K. George, Sanjay Gupta

Abstract

This article presents a simple and easily reproducible technique for the pre-operative reduction of lymphoedema in patients undergoing excisional procedures for cosmetic reasons. The technique needs no expensive equipment and can be used by the patient at home. It is ideally suited for use in rural surgery, where filarial lymphoedema is especially common.
