VOLUME REDUCTION AND MAINTENANCE WITH LYMPHA PRESS® AND COMPRESSION STOCKINGS

 In this study, patients obtained safe and rapid reduction with Lympha Press® applied in an inpatient setting,  averaging 45% loss in circumference. Follow up at three and six months showed that patients who were compliant with compression garments maintained 50% or more of their reduction.
