There is no cure for KTS. Treatment is symptomatic and supportive. Conservative treatments seem most effective while limiting the chances for undesired side effects. This may include the use of elastic garments and pumps to relieve lymphedema and protect limbs from trauma or orthopedic devices for discrepancies in limb length. Laser therapy may be used to diminish or eliminate some skin lesions (port-wine stains). Surgery may be used for tissue debulking, vein repair, or to correct uneven growth in the limbs.
