Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) therapy is an effective modality to reduce the volume of the lymphedematous limbs alone or in conjunction with other modalities of therapy such as decongestive therapy. However, there is no consensus on the frequency or treatment parameters for IPC devices. We undertook a systematic review of contemporary peer-reviewed literature (2004-2011) to evaluate the evidence for use of IPC in the treatment of lymphedema. In select patients, IPC use may provide an acceptable home-based treatment modality in addition to wearing compression garments.
