Hudson Valley Lymphedema Solutions
What is Lymphedema? Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the interstitial tissue that causes swelling, most often in the arm(s) and/or leg(s), and occasionally in other parts of the body. When the impairment becomes so great that the lymphatic fluid exceeds the lymphatic transport capacity, an abnormal amount of protein-rich fluid collects in the tissues of the affected area. Left untreated, lymphedema reduces oxygen availability in the transport system, interferes with wound healing, and provides a culture medium for bacteria that can result in infection.
