Abstract

Objective: Chronic lymphedema (CL) after inguinal lymph node dissection (ILND) or radiotherapy (RT) is a significant problem for vulvar cancer survivors. The treatment modality or combination of therapies that poses the greatest risk is not known. The objective of this study was to describe rates of clinically significant CL conferred by different groin treatment modalities.
