The prevalence of lymphedema is clearly underestimated. Too few patients receive treatment. It requires several specifically trained participants and must be conceived in the long term given the chronic nature and the incurability of this pathology. Prevention is therefore of major importance. Successfully applied to operated women for breast cancer, other models of coverage deserve to be developed to reduce the incidence of lymphedema and its complications, particularly after oncologic, orthopedic and vascular surgery and for patients affected by venous insufficiency.
