Seroma suppression using
TissuGlu® in a high-risk patient post-mastectomy: a case report
Post-mastectomy seromas are a
common problem in modern oncological surgery. Occurrence rates of up to 59%
have been reported in the literature. High-risk patients, that is, those who
have received previous surgeries, radiation or chemotherapy, present a
particular challenge. Several surgical techniques, including progressive
tension suture application, have shown promise. Noninvasive measures such as
fibrin-based adhesives have thus far not been able to prevent seroma occurrence
effectively. A recent study using a lysine-derived urethane adhesive named
TissuGlu®, however, showed promising results in patients after abdominoplasty.
We used TissuGlu® to treat a
high-risk 64-year-old female patient with a history of breast cancer and severe
post-mastectomy seroma. The postsurgical period showed successful seroma
suppression, without any adverse effects or complications.
This type of adhesive should be
evaluated as an alternative, less-invasive option for preventing seroma in
patients after a mastectomy.
