Evaluation of sequential intermittent pneumatic compression for filarial lymphedema

Natl Med J India. 2002 Jul-Aug;15(4):192-4. Manjula Y, Kate V, Ananthakrishnan N.
Lympha Press® treatment effectively reduced severe lymphedema caused by lymphatic filariasis, and significantly reduced the incidence of adenolymphangitis in these patients. The effect was not maintained after treatment was discontinued, indicating the need for ongoing therapy.

Paul S. van Bemmelen, MD; David B. Gitlitz, MD; Rishad M. Faruqi, MD; Joan Weiss-Olmanni, RVT; Valerie A. Brunetti, DPM, FACFAS; Fabio Giron, MD; John J. Ricotta, MD
This study tests the hypothesis that intermittent compression therapy may have beneficial clinical and hemodynamic effects for patients with inoperable chronic critical ischemia with rest pain or tissue loss.

Treatment of monstrous elephantiasis

F-J Schingale, (1999) Lymphlogie in Forschung und Praxis, Special edition.
This case report describes in-clinic reduction of massive lower extremity lymphedema resulting in a total weight loss of 179 lbs.

Acute Effects of Intermittent Pneumatic Compression on Popliteal Artery Blood Flow

Nicos Labropoulos, PhD; William C. Watson, BS; M. Ashraf Mansour, MD; Steven S. Kang, MD; Fred N. Littooy, MD; William H. Baker, MD
This study investigates the immediate effects of intermittent pneumatic foot and calf compression on popliteal artery blood flow in symptom-free volunteers and to determine the reproducibility of color flow duplex imaging in the popliteal artery.
Lymph Manual Drainage

A randomized study comparing manual lymph drainage with sequential pneumatic compression for treatment of postoperative arm lymphedema

K. Johansson, E. Lie, C. Ekdahl, J. Lindfelt. Department of Physical Therapy and Department of Surgery, University Hospital, Lund, Sweden., (1998) Lymphology, 31, 56-64.
This randomized trial compared Lympha Press® to MLD performed in-clinic. Lympha Press® and MLD were equally effective at reducing swelling. (Study funded by research grants from the Cancer Foundation of Sweden).
