Exploring Treatment Outcomes and Expectations in Lymphedema and Lipedema Patients: A Turkish Study

  •  I want to highlight a research study from Turkey that was brought to my attention thanks to Gayle Rockelli.
  • The study is titled Understanding Patient Expectations and Outcomes in Lymphedema Treatment: A Descriptive Analysis.
  • Although the title specifies lymphedema, the research also encompasses patients with lipedema and lipo-lymphedema.
  • Published in the Journal of Vascular Nursing in March 2022, this study delves into patients’ perspectives on their treatment needs and the effectiveness of the care received.
