BOCA RATON, Fla. - Sept. 15, 2015 - PRLog -- CRC Press title “Lymphedema: Complete Medical and Surgical Management” provides comprehensive coverage - from diagnosis to treatment

Boca Raton, Fla., September 15, 2015—CRC Press (, a global science, technology and medical publisher, is pleased to announce the publication of “Lymphedema: Complete Medical and Surgical Management (” Written by Drs. Peter C. Neligan, Jaume Masia and Neil Piller, this is one of the first books to cover the state of the field, encompassing both surgical and nonsurgical treatments.

The book opens with chapters on anatomy and embryology, discusses the physiology of the lymphatic system, and examines the pathophysiology of primary and secondary lymphedema. It also reviews risk factors in breast cancer, examines lymphedema in pediatrics, and explores sentinel node biopsy. In addition, the book describes psychological and dermatological implications.

Building on this foundation, the text discusses diagnostic modalities, biomarkers, and differential lymph node mapping and clinical staging. It includes the history of lymphedema treatment and an overview of various past and present treatments in India and China, then explores pharmacological options, excisional approaches, liposuction, and venous implantation methods. Detailed presentations of lymphatic grafts and surgical treatments round out the coverage.

"We have tried to be rational, and where possible, evidence-based in our approach to lymphedema, although we acknowledge that at times the evidence is not strong or is based only on clinical judgements (the experience of experts). The fact that the symptoms and consequences of lymphedema often have a lifelong impact on the quality of survival of our patients must be dealt with in a balanced and holistic manner.” – from the preface

The book closes with a discussion on animal models, improving patient outcomes, and the potential use of stem cells in lymphedema management. Using a consistent format throughout, the book includes more than 500 illustrations, many in color. A DVD with practical surgical videos is included. With US, European, and Asian-Pacific contributing experts, this book presents a truly global approach.
