The purpose of this study is to determine whether a specific external compression pump called the AVT pump can improve blood flow to the skin of the feet in patients with circulatory problems involving the arteries or veins of the legs. The use of the AVT pump in this study is considered investigational, which means it has either not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for routine clinical use or for the use described in this study.
This study aims to assess the utility of pharyngeal manometry measures as a novel approach in quantifying internal lymphedema and compare success rates in reducing internal lymphedema using manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) versus use of a pneumatic compression device (PCD). It also aims to assess efficacy of PCD and MLD and assess compliance of treatment in both groups. Lastly, it aims to identify voice and swallowing changes in both groups.
