Abstract
Introduction: After a mastectomy, lymphedema is a possible side effect. The improvement of the lymphatic system is the most important aspect of Lymphedema treatment. Lymphedema can be treated effectively with manual lymphatic drainage (MLD).
Aims: The core of the current study is to draw a comparison that highlights the effects of the Vodder MLD and the Casley-Smith MLD on post-mastectomy lymphedema.
Methods: For the study, thirty female patients with post-mastectomy lymphedema were divided into two equal groups at random. Vodder MLD Technique, Pneumatic Compression Pump, and Bandage were given to Group (A). Casley-Smith MLD Technique, Pneumatic Compression Pump, and Bandage were given to Group (B). Each participant's intervention lasted eight weeks, with three sessions every week.
Results: The results showed that employing two distinct treatment procedures improved both groups significantly (P < 0.001). There is not a clear disparity between the two study categories (P > 0.05).
Conclusion: The MLD techniques of both Vodder and Casley-Smith are helpful in providing a treatment for the lymphedema post mastectomy. There is no difference between the two techniques. Subsequently, any MLD technique is highly recommended to produce better results in lymphedema therapy after mastectomy.

Key words: Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Casley-Smith Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Lymphedema, Mastectomy, Mastectomy related lymphedema, Manual lymphatic Drainage Techniques
