Clinical Trial Summary

Tissue Elastography Assessement and Cuteous and Cubcutaneous Thickness Measurement Following Manual Lymph Drainage in Legs With Lymphedema Hence the importance of evaluating the impact of an intensive five-day decongestive treatment on lymphedema in terms of cutaneous flexibility and edema regression. Patients who are undergoing intensive decongestive treatment for four or five days in the department perform an ultrasound check/examiantion on the first day. During this echography, in 5 usual measurement points are made an ultrasound image recording (for measurement of cutaneous and subcutaneous thicknesses) and an elastography sequence (an instantaneous measurement). The study hypothesis is to note that intensive decongestive treatment has an impact on tissues flexibility and cutaneous and subcutaneous thickness. No many authors discussed this suject, hence the interest of this study. All the data collected and the results obtained will serve for further studies.
