Is bioimpedance spectroscopy a useful tool for objectively assessing lymphovenous bypass surgical outcomes in breast cancer-related lymphedema?

This is the first study to utilize BIS measurements to assess response to LVB surgical intervention for BCRL. BIS measurements demonstrated clinically significant improvement after LVB, providing objective evidence in support of this surgical treatment for BCRL. BIS changes should be reported as key objective data in future studies assessing BCRL interventions, including response to LVB.
