Histological Alterations Following Bariatric Surgery: Pilot Study
- 129 Downloads
Macroscopic clinical evidence of tissue damaging following bariatric surgery pushed plastic surgeons to presume microscopic alterations as well.
Five preliminary cases studied randomly, and compared with healthy tissues, confirmed these initial suspects. A deeper and wider study has then been structured.
Preliminary results are so evident to encourage us to carry on an estimated 2–3 years multidisciplinary study.
What we want to study is if histological post-bariatric alterations are confirmed, and if these can be considered responsible for higher complication rate in body contouring following bariatric surgery.
