With a prevalence of up to 25%, seroma formation is among the most common complications of body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty. Small amounts of fluid are reabsorbed by the body spontaneously, however, larger seroma volumes need to be evacuated via puncture aspiration to prevent wound healing disturbances and infection, leading to major patient discomfort and a prolonged hospital stay. There is increasing controversy regarding the efficacy of surgical drains in seroma prevention. This study compares the incidence rate of seroma in three study arms with different usage of drains.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the impact of Customizable in the management of extensive closed surgical incisions for Subjects undergoing abdominal surgery for incisional hernia repair and/or functional panniculectomy as compared to SOC dressing, and to significantly reduce the SSC rate experienced by Subjects receiving Customizable vs. SOC surgical incision dressing.
