Panniculectomy: a useful technique for the obese patient undergoing gynecological surgery.
P. Blomfield, T. Le, D. Allen, R. Planner
MedicineGynecologic oncology
1998
TLDR
Panniculectomy is a useful technique in obese patients that improves surgical access facilitating radical surgery and is cosmetically pleasing to the patient and has acceptable morbidity when compared to conventional midline vertical or transverse incisions in comparable populations. Expand

TLDR
A retrospective chart review was conducted for 10 morbidly obese patients who had large abdominal panniculectomy with abdominoplasty at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Bari, Italy, between 1995 and 2001 to allow a better exposure of pelvis and abdomen and thus facilitate surgery.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that panniculectomy performed at the time of gynecologic surgery aids in reducing the operative time and exposure and does not increase the wound infection rate in morbidly obese patients.Expand

MedicineGynecologic oncology
1998
TLDR
Abdominal panniculectomy is a reasonably safe procedure that makes radical pelvic surgery possible regardless of the patient's weight, and prolonged wound bulb suction drainage may decrease the incidence of wound necrosis/infection in high-risk patients. Expand

MedicineObstetrics and gynecology

TLDR
Abdominal panniculectomy is safe and useful in morbidly obese women and to decrease the incidence of wound necrosis, infection, and dehiscence among those high-risk women who all had chronic intertrigo in the skin folds under their panni. Expand

TLDR
It is revealed that panniculectomy combined with pelvic surgery in the morbidly obese is a safe procedure that can decrease the incidence of intraoperative complications and postoperative wound complications without significantly increasing operative time or blood loss. Expand
