Relationship between lymphatic functionality and edema magnitude. Functionality data (AUC at 2 hr) were plotted versus their corresponding edema values at 6 wk, n = 36. The trend shows a negative correlation, suggesting that as lymphatic functionality increases, edema magnitude at 6 wk decreases. Linear regression analysis revealed this trend to be significant, P = 0.001.
