Title: Surgical Intervention: A position document on surgery for lymphoedema
Date of Publication: 2012

Description

This position document on the role of surgery in lymphoedema management forms part of the second edition of the International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF) best practice document. The ILF are very proud that this document is based on a systematic review of surgery in lymphoedema management undertaken by the American Lymphoedema Framework Project; the chapter by Dr Janice Cormier summaries their findings and recommendations. This approach follows that of the first edition of the best practice document that began with Cochrane systematic reviews of physical therapies.
