For women and men who have lymphedema of the arm, there is a growing interest in lymph node transfer as a surgical solution. Dr. Stanley G. Rockson and his research team at Stanford University are currently studying lymph node transfer for arm lymphedema, to determine the best possible approaches for a favorable outcome to the surgery. If you have arm lymphedema and are contemplating lymph node transfer surgery, you may be eligible to participate in this study.

Parents of children who have been diagnosed with lymphedema are invited to participate in a research study at Miami University (Ohio). The purpose of this study is to better understand the experiences of biological parents of children with lymphedema.
They are interested in learning more from you about what it is like for you in caring for a child with primary lymphedema. Specifically, they want to know about your unique challenges as a parent, your role as an advocate for their child in health care, school-based, and other settings, how you explain lymphedema to your children and how you help your children in turn explain lymphedema to others.
Volunteers will participate in an informal interview over the telephone, via video conference (e.g, FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangout), or face-to-face with an interviewer. The interview may last up to one hour
This study has been approved by the Miami University Institutional Review Board: 01182r.
