Massive Localized Lymphedema (MLL) is a rare “pseudosarcoma” occurring in morbidly obese patients, typically in the proximal thigh. Usually unilateral and often associated with trauma, MLL is a difficult diagnosis, but there are treatments to help these patients.
Surgical options, MLD, kinesiology, and bandaging are covered, as is the unique LymphaPod by Lympha Press, which is specifically designed for the obese patient. With 5% of the US population now deemed obese, this is a timely and informative webinar.
