Br J Community Nurs. 2020 Apr 01;25(Sup4):S17-S22 Authors: Paling I, Macintyre L Abstract Lipoedema is an incurable chronic disease causing limb deformity, painful skin and excessive ecchymosis. Compression garments are frequently recommended to manage symptoms, but the existing products are not designed specifically for lipoedema, and are for other medical conditions. A structured questionnaire was prepared in Online Surveys in October 2018 to investigate lipoedema symptoms and the use of compression garments to manage them. Some 279 people with lipoedema completed the survey; 70% wore compression garments in all four compression classes, of which class 2 was most common (58% of wearers). The top three reasons for wearing compression garments were to feel supported (73%), reduce lipoedema pain (67%) and improve mobility (54%). Most people with lipoedema who wore compression garments found compression helpful in managing their symptoms, but overall satisfaction was low. Problems with existing compression garments were so severe in some cases that the garments were not worn at all or used less often. The information collected in this survey might be useful for the design and development of compression garments specifically for lipoedema. PMID: 32271105 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

  • Haddenham Comfiwave: a unique compression device for lymphoedema treatment.

    Related Articles Haddenham Comfiwave: a unique compression device for lymphoedema treatment. Br J Community Nurs. 2020 Apr 01;25(Sup4):S23-S30 Authors: Phillips N, Lawrance S Abstract Compression therapy is the mainstay of treatment in venous and lymphatic diseases. Optimisation of compression therapy is not a new concept, but, in the UK, the use of 24-hour compression therapy as part of the maintenance phase of treatment has not been standard practice and, until recently, has only been adopted by certain specialist centres. One such modality in the process of optimisation is the use of products that are classed as ‘reduced compression’ or ‘night-time garments’. These are not traditional flat- or circular-knit garments but are made of various components to include foam and, more recently, knitted cotton fabrics. Haddenham Comfiwave is a new product that has recently been brought to market and does not feature in the literature reviewed. Although a new unique product in its own right, it has been demonstrated to fit within the common groups of products discussed. PMID: 32271103 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

  • Women in dire need: the far-reaching impact of lipoedema on women’s lives.

    Related Articles Women in dire need: the far-reaching impact of lipoedema on women’s lives. Br J Community Nurs. 2020 Apr 01;25(Sup4):S6-S9 Authors: Fetzer A Abstract Lipoedema, an adipose tissue disorder, is a poorly visible, often unrecognised condition. To foster a greater understanding of the significant and debilitating impacts faced by women living with lipoedema, the charity Lipoedema UK conducted four focus group interviews, the findings of which were published in a series of reports under the umbrella title ‘Women in dire need’. The reports identified the substantial and numerous negative effects of lipoedema on the women’s everyday lives, including the patients’ experiences with compression garments, the effects of liposuction surgery (many of which were not positive), the everyday impacts ranging from pain and reduced mobility to poor self-esteem and working prospects, and the considerable challenges faced by women with late-stage lipoedema which can render them immobile.

  • Chronic oedema and lymphoedema: what is the difference?
    by Cooper-Stanton G on 15 de janeiro de 2021 at 13:51

    Related Articles Chronic oedema and lymphoedema: what is the difference? Br J Community Nurs. 2020 Apr 01;25(Sup4):S31-S35 Authors: Cooper-Stanton G Abstract Chronic oedema is a term that encompasses several causes that lead to oedema formation in any part of the body. This includes lymphoedema and its subcategories. Despite the assumption that these are different, there are more commonalities amongst them. This makes the transfer of knowledge and experience, from chronic oedema conditions to lymphoedema, and vice versa easier to achieve. However, this takes both time and support, to achieve the ultimate patient outcome of self-care, with generalist able to support this process and journey. PMID: 32271099 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]
