Lymphoedema is a fairly frequent disease, related to many disorders of the lower and upper limbs. The venous and lymphatic systems work together to maintain the microcirculatory /macrocirculatory homeostasis of the tissue.
Oedema expresses the saturation of the compensatory mechanisms in the lymphatic system, due to an overload or a functional or organic deficiency.
Compression is fundamental in treating lymphoedema and represents a major point of reference for this disease. In fact, during the acute phase, manual lymphatic drainage aided by bandaging reduces the oedema, and retention is achieved with compression segments
