Persistencet gastrocutaneous fistula is rare in adults, but even less common is recannulization of a fistula track following initial closure. Formal closure of gastrostomy tube sites during scar reconstruction and abdominoplasty may help prevent the complication of delayed gastrostomy tube tract rupture into the subcutaneous tissues.

ABSTRACT Background The main drawbacks of wearing a compression garment after abdominoplasty are increases in intra-abdominal pressure rise and the possibility of venous stasis. On the one hand, wearing clothing may elevate the chance of venous thromboembolism. Absa's Aims: To determine the effectiveness of compression garments in reducing subcutaneous edema after abdominoplasty, the aim is to determine the frequency of abdominoplasty. The evaluation of seroma formation was determined by ultrasound, and perimetry and bioimpedance demonstrated the production of operative edema formation. After abdominoplasty and significantly lower WC after postoperative day 35 compared to garment group averages, the no-garment group showed a trend toward lower mean waist circumference at 29 days following abdominoplasty and significantly reduced WC. The mean total body water content in the no-garment group was marginally lower than in the clothing sector 7 days after surgery. Patients who did not wear a compression jacket after abdominoplasty had less subcutaneous edema formation after 24 days of surgery than those who did not wear the garment.

This is the first report of a small bowel obstruction after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in the post-operative phase of an abdominoplasty. Following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, Doubts remain concerned about the potential causal role abdominoplasty may have in small bowel intussusception.

Whatever the size, the Aim EHS consensus recommends mesh implantation for all surgical hernia repairs, regardless of size. In the IH repair process, we recommend considering abdominoplasty, wherein the plicated fascia functions as a permanently autologous biologic onlay repair over the primary repair of the IH. Abdominoplasty was performed on four patients with midline IHs. Materials & Methods Four patients with midline IHs underwent abdominoplasty. Patients were male with an average age of 51 years. Abdominoplasty can be a safe and effective alternative to traditional mesh-based repair for IH repair. In effect, the patient's own plicated fascia serves as a permanent autologous biologic onlay complement to the IH repair. After abdominoplasty, our pilot study in small IHs showed no hernia recurrence one-year postoperatively. Hence, abdominoplasty may be a viable surgical option for a subset of patients with IH. We want to expand indications for abdominoplasty for IH repair to fix more specific candidate characteristics.

Objectives This research sought to determine if the postoperative wearing of an abdominal binder could contribute to either seroma development or recurrent diastasis recti when abdominoplasty is done with quilting sutures. Methods Thirty-four women undergoing abdominoplasty were split into two groups: the binder group used abdominal binders during the postoperative period, while the control group did not. Ultrasound examination was performed on postoperative days 7 and 14 to determine seroma formation and at 6 months postoperatively to determine diastasis recti recurrence. At different time points for the two groups, generalized estimation equation models were used to determine seroma volume at various time points. By ultrasound examination in the supraumbilical and infraumbilical zones, seven cases of chronic diastasis were detected, but there were no similarities between the two groups.

Fat embolism is a polyetiologic disease that is still prevalent and is an epidemic problem of our time. Around the same time, a trend toward an increase in the incidence is present everywhere. The aim of this study is to review the literature on the topic: fat embolism in plastic surgery after surgery - abdominoplasty in combination with liposuction. Forty papers that met the inclusion criteria were accepted, including those that fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The review paper discusses approaches for preventing and treating patients with fat embolism, pathogenesis, and stages of disease in this pathological disorder, as well as treatment strategies. In the end, there was no agreement reached. Hence, many views on the topic of fat embolism are mixed, and there is no single standardized approach to treating patients. We came to the conclusion that therapeutic steps should be aimed at reducing the main clinical signs of an injury or disease after analyzing the collected data.
