Lymphedema is a chronic and invalidating pathology of the lymphatic system, but for which effective and verified protocols of management and care are available. To reach the best management of this condition, it is necessary to start from a correct diagnosis and a personalised and adapted therapeutic program; for this reason, we offer this occasion for an update, with the aim of giving an overview of the current state-of-the-art.
Lipoedema is still a poorly known condition and often confused with lymphoedema. Although it affects many women worldwide, the knowledge about effective diagnostic and therapeutic approaches is still thinly spread.
The need of sharing the most updated notions about it is mandatory after the official recognition of Lipoedema as disease by W.H.O, that included it in the International Classification of Diseases 11th revision (EF02 code).
Being Lipoedema and Lymphedema of multi-disciplinary and multi-professional interest, this Congress is open to physicians, physical therapists, psychologists and nutritionists, but also for patients and their families and caregivers.
