The use of a tissue tonometer as a diagnostic aid in extremity lymphoedema: a determination of its conservative treatment with benzo-pyrones.


With the aid of a tissue tonometer, we have been able to gain an estimate of the rate at which the lymphoedematous tissue loses its compressability and regains it upon treatment with the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: the benzo-pyrones. The values obtained by tonometry, unlike other objective methods of measurement of the effectiveness of a therapy, approximate closely to the patients subjective claims.
