Perspectives on Lipedema
Lipedema is a chronic condition characterized by abnormal fat accumulation primarily in the lower limbs and buttocks. It predominantly affects women and can be misdiagnosed as obesity or lymphedema. Symptoms include symmetrical limb enlargement, tenderness, bruising, and a column-like shape of the legs. Conservative treatments like compression therapy and specialized exercises can help manage symptoms. In advanced cases, liposuction designed for lipoedema may be considered.
Lipoedema pathophysiology and potential new therapeutic pathways
Global experts will share latest insights in the lipoedema pathophysiology and potential new therapeutic pathways. They will bring personal experiences, give guidance in choosing the right type of compression therapy, and answer all questions you might have related to this topic.
Lipoedema diagnosis and treatment
The KOLs are approaching lipedema in this web seminar by defining the disease and shedding light on conservative treatment options through compressive garments
Lipoedema: Paradoxes and possibilities
Lipoedema is a challenging problem as detailed knowledge is limited. Even today, only a small fraction of practitioners acknowledge the disorder. In his engaging talk within the current global medical online hub (MOH) webinar “Latest insights in the lipoedema pathophysiology and potential new therapeutic pathways” on August 27, 2022, Dr Stanley Rockson unravels the clinical problem of lipoedema and presented perspectives on how to move forward.
Uncovering a cellular and molecular basis for lipoedema
Lipoedema is a chronic disease of high unmet need. Challenges include lack of diagnostic tools and animal models, ignorance and prejudice, as well as getting international consensus due to limited research in this field. Drs Ramin Shayan and Tara Karnezis present their cutting-edge research on this topic within the current global medical online hub (MOH) webinar “Latest insights in the lipoedema pathophysiology and potential new therapeutic pathways” on August 27, 2022.
Lipoedema - why we needed this paradigm shift
Compression therapy uses the technique of controlled pressure to increase blood flow in the legs. It helps to improve blood flow in the heart, supports veins and decreases swelling in lower extremities. However, there are some risks that were explained by Dr. Tobias Hirsch.
Lipedema is a Lymphatic Disease
Lipedema (or the "pole leg" disease) is a rare and painful disorder of adipose tissue. It mainly affects females and is generally misdiagnosed as lymphedema or obesity.
Garment choices for lipoedema
Lipoedema is an abnormal build-up of fat in the legs and sometimes arms. Susan Butcher highlighted several cases where the correct garment use helped lipoedema patients in treating the symptoms.
