01.12 EAGLE FM Trial - Lymphoedema Assessments
We have produced an instructional video on the lymphoedema assessments performed in the EAGLE FM Study

Lymphoedema is the swelling of the tissues under the skin that may occur after lymph node surgery. It occurs when there is a breakdown or blockage in the Lymphatic drainage system resulting in some of the lymph fluid remaining in the tissues. The incidence of Lymphoedema following treatment varies with the extent of surgery performed and whether or not radiotherapy is used.

The EAGLE FM Trial includes a sub-study to monitor the development of Lymphoedema in patients who have undergone Inguinal or Ilio-Inguinal Lymphadenectomies.

EAGLE FM patients are observed for any interventions they receive in response to their lymphoedema. Patients are also observed for a change in limb circumference and hip-flexor and calf length. Bio-impedance measurements are also taken (where available).

Patients are followed up with these Lymphoedema specific exams every 6 months for the first 2 years and then annually until they reach year 5 of follow up.

Melanoma: Winning the Battle (26 August 2012)

Medical oncologist, Dr Georgina Long, is speaking about the battle against melanoma and the future of treatment. This recording was done at the launch of the Melanoma Genome Project at Melanoma Institute Australia on 24th August 2012.

The Melanoma Genome Project is an ambitious and important two-year national research program that aims to identify the common gene mutations that lead to melanoma. The effort aims to identify new targets for effective treatments based on the genetic characteristics of individual melanomas.
