Measuring limb volume: Accuracy and reliability of tape measurement versus perometer measurement

Abstract:

Background

Accurate limb volume measurement is key in the assessment of outcomes in lymphedema microsurgery. There are two commonly used methods as follows: manual circumferential measurement (tape) or Perometer measurement. There are no data on the intra- and interclass correlation of either method, making it difficult to establish a gold standard of limb volume measurement. We aim to assess the intra- and interclass correlation of eachmethod to establish themost appropriate met...
