Say Goodbye to Compression Garments after Dr. Cheng’s Lymphedema Microsurgery
It was my great honor and privilege to have a podium presentation for 25 minutes at the 138 the Annual Meeting of American Surgical Association (ASA), Phoenix, Arizona, April 19th to 21st, 2018. The topic of my presentation was “Validity in the application of the novel Taiwan Lymphoscintigraphy staging and clinical grading systems for unilateral extremity lymphedema”. Among hundreds of submissions, only 32 papers were accepted and granted at this esteemed meeting this year. The Annals of Surgery is the official publication of papers reviewed and presented at the scientific sessions at ASA. My research paper was the only one that is not from the nationally renowned American medical institute, as well as one of the few that were elected from the field of plastic surgery over the past 138 years. I would like to express heartfelt appreciation to the co-authors in this paper: Marco Pappalardo, Chieh Lin, Chang-Fu Kuo, Chia-Yu Lin, and Kevin Chung. It has been a great pleasure working with them. I am so proud and excited that our work has been acknowledged and recognized.
