Satisfaction with a therapeutic sleeve for arm lymphedema secondary to breast cancer treatment: Controlled crossover trial
F. Osório, L. Ferro, L. Garrido, A. Henriques, J. Cruz, R. Fangueiro, J.L. Fougo, A. Azevedo
Porto Biomed J. 2017;2:13-7

  • Secondary lymphedema is a late iatrogenic side effect of breast cancer treatment.

  • Despite multimodal decongestive therapy in their daily life breast cancer survivors with lymphedema have few alternatives but to use a compressive sleeve.

  • Concerned with the well-known low compliance to the daily use of traditional sleeves, we conducted a comparative study to evaluate the subjective assessment of an innovative class 1 compression sleeve.

  • We concluded that the PRADEX® sleeve, not being worse in its compressive efficacy, is much better with regard to patient comfort.
