A Comparison of Bioimpedance Spectroscopy or Tape Measure Triggered Compression Intervention in Chronic Brease Cancer Lymphedema Prevention

This study compared rates of progression to chronic breast cancer-related lymphedema (defined as ≥ 10% arm volume change from baseline requiring complex decongestive physiotherapy [CDP]) following an intervention for subclinical lymphedema (S-BCRL) triggered by bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) or by tape measurement (TM).
