In Latin America every three years for the last 12 years a group of professionals have been meeting to establish and arrive at a consensus on how to manage lymphedema. In 2011 the meeting took place in São Paulo, and brought together about 40 lymphologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and plastic surgeons. Several topics were identified as priorities by establishing the degree of consensus.
