Diagnostic et thérapie du lymphœdéme et des ulcères veineux de jambe

Cette première session du MOH Africaine est dédiée à deux thèmes principaux : Premièrement, le traitement du lymphœdème et, deuxièmement, le traitement des ulcères veineux de jambe.

Le système lymphatique est un réseau d’organes, de ganglions lymphatiques, de canaux lymphatiques et de vaisseaux lymphatiques qui produisent et transportent la lymphe des tissus vers la circulation sanguine. Le système lymphatique est un élément majeur du système immunitaire de l’organisme. Les pathologies lymphatiques sont une classe de troubles qui affectent directement les composants du système lymphatique.

Certains cas d'ulcères veineux sont difficiles à traiter et nécessitent un diagnostic différentiel plus approfondi, une prise en charge multidisciplinaire et notamment le recours à la thérapie médicale par compression comme comme méthode de traitement conservatrice.

Ce MOH Talk sera mené en français.


This first session of the African MOH is dedicated to two main themes: First, the treatment of lymphedema, and second, the treatment of venous leg ulcers.

The lymphatic system is a network of organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels that produce and transport lymph from the tissues to the bloodstream. The lymphatic system is a major component of the body's immune system. Lymphatic pathologies are a class of disorders that directly affect the components of the lymphatic system.

Some cases of venous ulcers are difficult to treat and require a more thorough differential diagnosis, multidisciplinary management, and notably, the use of compression therapy as a conservative treatment.

This MOH Talk will be held in French.
