​ What is the lymphatic system?


The circulatory system of the body is divided into the vascular system and the lymphatic system.

Vascular system; heart, blood vessels (arteries, veins, capillaries)

Lymphatic system; lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes


Blood pumped from the heart flows from the arteries to the capillaries, where some water seeps out and circulates in the tissue, back into the capillaries, some into the lymph vessels, and finally back into the veins. The body fluid components that pass through these lymph vessels are called "lymph".

What is lymphedema?


Lymphedema is a disease in which the lymphatic system does not work well for some reason and lymph accumulates between tissues.

The causes are "primary lymphedema" that occurs when the lymphatic system is not formed normally, and "secondary lymphedema" that obstructs the flow of lymph due to removal of lymph nodes due to venous disease or surgery for cancer. It is classified. Although it is not a life-threatening condition, if left untreated, it may cause a decrease in QOL due to edema, cellulitis, complications, and serious conditions such as dermatosis.
