    A deep wrist crease in upper extremity lymphedema is not uncommon. One approach would be a longer glove over the sleeve. Taking the length of the glove beyond the C1 landmark on the arm and bring it up to the D landmark or just below the elbow crease. This helps provide comfort and continuity of the glove over the sleeve really helps manage that edema in the hand as well.
