  • Women’s experiences of living with lipedema
    by Catharina Melander on 12 de julho de 2021 at 10:00

    Lipedema is a chronic, progressive disease that almost exclusively affects women and often misdiagnosed as obesity or primary lymphedema. Research concerning lipedema is sparse, and there is a lack of studies focusing on women’s experiences of living with the illness. We interviewed fourteen women with lipedema with the aim of describing their experiences of living with lipedema. Our results show that women felt controlled by their body, and were fat-shamed and viewed by others as a person who…

  • Lipedema : an unknown entity
    by Vincienne Naef on 1 de abril de 2021 at 10:00

    Lipedema is an infrequently recognized disorder. It is characterized by bilateral painful enlargement of the legs due to abnormal depositions of subcutaneous fat, that can result in considerable disability. The diagnosis is established on the basis of medical history and clinical findings. Early diagnosis of this disorder is necessary to start adapted management and prevent progression and complications of the disease. Currently there is no curative treatment. The conservative treatment requires…

  • Interstitial Fluid in Lipedema and Control Skin
    by Marisol Allen on 31 de março de 2021 at 10:00

    Background: Fluid in lymphedema tissue appears histologically as spaces around vessels and between dermal skin fibers. Lipedema is a painful disease of excess loose connective tissue (fat) in limbs, almost exclusively of women, that worsens by stage, increasing lymphedema risk. Many women with lipedema have hypermobile joints suggesting a connective tissue disorder that may affect vessel structure and compliance of tissue resulting in excess fluid entering the interstitial space. It is unclear…

    by Matthias Sandhofer on 8 de março de 2021 at 11:00

    Lipedema is a chronic, progressive disease that occurs almost exclusively in women and leads to pathological, painful fat growths at the extremities. Only symptomatic therapy can be offered since the etiology of the disease has not yet been clarified. Liposuction in tumescent anesthesia has established itself as a surgical treatment method of choice. The complication rate associated with the procedure and the pharmacological course and safety of treatment in patients with lipedema has not yet…

  • Rest/stress intradermal lymphoscintigraphy in diagnosis of lipedema
    by Girolamo Tartaglione on 24 de fevereiro de 2021 at 11:00

    Lipedema is a chronic and progressive disease characterized by a symmetrical and bilateral swelling of the lower extremities. In general, the feet are not involved. Lipedema is believed to affect nearly 1 in 9 adult women worldwide. Despite this relatively common disease, lipedema is often confused with primary lymphedema or obesity. In clinically advanced lipedema stages, fat continues to build up and may block the lymphatic vessels causing a secondary lymphedema (Lipo-Lymphedema). We…

  • Lipedema
    by Ankit Vyas on 1 de janeiro de 2021 at 11:00

    Dr. Allen and Dr. Hines pioneered and first described lipedema in the 1940s, a common subcutaneous adipose tissue disorder characterized as enlargement of both lower extremities. Lipedema is not edema; it is a genetically determined disturbance in adipose tissue mass and adipose tissue distribution. In 1951 a second seminal paper provided more description of lipedema. Fat distribution involves lower extremities, upper arms, hips, buttocks, thighs sparing trunks, and feet. Lower extremities are…

  • Ketogenic diet as a potential intervention for lipedema
    by L Keith on 11 de dezembro de 2020 at 11:00

    Lipedema (LI) is a common yet misdiagnosed condition, often misconstrued with obesity. LI affects women almost exclusively, and its painful and life-changing symptoms have long been thought to be resistant to the lifestyle interventions such as diet and exercise. In this paper, we discuss possible mechanisms by which patients adopting a ketogenic diet (KD) can alleviate many of the unwanted clinical features of LI. This paper is also an effort to provide evidence for the hypothesis of the…

  • The Effects of Complete Decongestive Therapy or Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Therapy or Exercise Only in the Treatment of Severe Lipedema: A Randomized Controlled Trial
    by Tuğba Atan on 10 de dezembro de 2020 at 11:00

    Background: Lack of diagnostic awareness of lipedema and frequent confusion with obesity or lymphedema may be an obstacle for treatment. The clinical effects of conservative treatment methods are not clearly known. This study investigated the effects of exercise-based rehabilitation combined with complete decongestive therapy (CDT) or intermittent pneumatic compression therapy (IPCT) or alone in patients with severe lipedema. Methods: Thirty-three women with severe (type 3, stage III or IV)…

  • Hematoma in lipedema: from cutaneous origin or defect of coagulation?
    by Christoph Sucker on 10 de dezembro de 2020 at 11:00

    Lipedema is a widespread in concern of etiology partially unknown disease especially in women. In many cases it is accompanied by bleeding complications. Our current work focuses on possible coagulation disorders as potential sources of such bleeding complications. Since only a minority of our patients showed a coagulation defect it is suggestive that the main underlying reason for bleeding in lipedema is of cutaneous origin what may only be forwarded by simultaneously existing coagulation…

  • Current review of factors in the stem cell donor that influence the regenerative potential of adipose tissue-derived stem cells
    by Constanze Kuhlmann on 8 de dezembro de 2020 at 11:00

    CONCLUSION: We recommend characterisation of the ASC donor cohort in all publications, regardless of whether they are experimental studies or clinical trials. By these means, donor factors that influence experimental or clinical findings can be made transparent and results are more comparable. Moreover, this knowledge can be used for study design to form a homogenous donor cohort by precise clinical history and physical examination.

  • Lipedema and the Evolution to Lymphedema With the Progression of Obesity
    by Lívia Maria Pereira de Godoy on 7 de dezembro de 2020 at 11:00

    CONCLUSION: Patients with lipedema can develop edema even when their weight is within the standards of normality. However, obesity is an aggravating factor, as the prevalence of lipedema increases progressively with the increase in weight.

  • 3D Spheroids Derived from Human Lipedema ASCs Demonstrated Similar Adipogenic Differentiation Potential and ECM Remodeling to Non-Lipedema ASCs In Vitro
    by Sara Al-Ghadban on 11 de novembro de 2020 at 11:00

    The growth and differentiation of adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ASCs) is stimulated and regulated by the adipose tissue (AT) microenvironment. In lipedema, both inflammation and hypoxia influence the expansion and differentiation of ASCs, resulting in hypertrophic adipocytes and deposition of collagen, a primary component of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The goal of this study was to characterize the adipogenic differentiation potential and assess the levels of expression of…

  • Medical crowdfunding in a healthcare system with universal coverage: an exploratory study
    by Ágnes Lublóy on 10 de novembro de 2020 at 11:00

  • Use of upper-limb compression garments in the management of lipoedema
    by Rebecca Elwell on 8 de outubro de 2020 at 10:00

    Compression hosiery is commonly used for the management of lymphoedema as well as lipoedema, but it is more commonly indicated for the lower limbs than for the upper limbs. The effects of compression hosiery on upper-limb lipoedema are poorly understood and researched. It is known that compression hosiery works in conjunction with activity or movement when standing or walking, which produces anti-inflammatory and oxygenating effects in the tissues. This effect is naturally difficult to realise…

  • Cause and management of lipedema-associated pain
    by Hasan Aksoy on 1 de outubro de 2020 at 10:00

    Lipedema is a painful, underdiagnosed adipose tissue disorder, characterized by symmetrical swelling of the extremities due to subcutaneous fat deposition in the buttocks, thighs, legs, and arms, sparing the most distal part of the extremities. Although etiology and pathogenesis of lipedema is unclear, possible role of hormonal and genetic factors have been proposed previously. Patients with lipedema suffer from pain, easy bruising, tenderness, and disfigurement. Pain is the leading symptom in…

  • Lower extremity lymphatic function predicted by body mass index: a lymphoscintigraphic study of obesity and lipedema
    by Arin K Greene on 16 de setembro de 2020 at 10:00

    CONCLUSIONS: The risk of lymphedema in patients with obesity and lipedema can be predicted by BMI; confirmation requires lymphoscintigraphy. Individuals with OIL are at risk for cellulitis and MLL. Patients with a BMI > 40 are first managed with weight loss. Excisional procedures can further reduce extremity size once BMI has been lowered.

  • Aldo-Keto Reductase 1C1 (AKR1C1) as the First Mutated Gene in a Family with Nonsyndromic Primary Lipedema
    by Sandro Michelini on 3 de setembro de 2020 at 10:00

    Lipedema is an often underdiagnosed chronic disorder that affects subcutaneous adipose tissue almost exclusively in women, which leads to disproportionate fat accumulation in the lower and upper body extremities. Common comorbidities include anxiety, depression, and pain. The correlation between mood disorder and subcutaneous fat deposition suggests the involvement of steroids metabolism and neurohormones signaling, however no clear association has been established so far. In this study, we…
