About Master Class:

In this masterclass the current knowledge on microcirculation in normal physiological conditions and the relationship with different pathological conditions leading to chronic oedema will be discussed. Once the theoretical framework is set, the participants will explore the current evidence concerning the Complex Decongestive Therapy as consensus (conservative approach) treatment for chronic oedema.

After a brief update on the different pillars, there will be focus on manual lymphatic drainage and compression therapy. The importance of compression therapy will be discussed by means of clinical cases and different scenarios from clinical practice. This masterclass combines lectures and skills demonstrations.
