[Pneumatic compression in the treatment of lymphatic edema of the arm in patients
subjected to radical surgery for breast cancer]
Vopr Onkol 1984;30(9):35-8

Air compression procedure was used in the treatment of 32 females radically
operated on for breast cancer. The desired pressure of compressed air was fed
successively in the proximal direction to the six chambers of a cuffed sleeve unit
which was fitted over the patient's arm enclosing it from shoulder joint to
fingers. The study will be continued because good results were obtained following
application of three courses of the treatment.
