Peripheral edema

peripheral edema, peripheral edema treatment
Peripheral edema is edema accumulation of fluid causing swelling in tissues perfused by the peripheral vascular system, usually in the lower limbs In the most dependent parts of the body those hanging distally, it may be called dependent edema

The condition is commonly associated with aging, but can be caused by many other conditions, including congestive heart failure, trauma, alcoholism, altitude sickness, pregnancy, hypertension, sickle cell anemia, compromised lymphatic system, or merely long periods of time sitting or standing without moving Some medicines eg amlodipine, pregabalin may also cause or worsen the condition

Prognosis

Successful treatment depends on control of the underlying cause Severe swelling can cause permanent damage to nerves, resulting in peripheral neuropathy Many cases from temporary or minor causes resolve on their own, with no lasting damage
