Edema on the seam after operation

Very often, that after surgeryinterference with the violation of the skin, surgeons use seams. Varieties of seams are huge, even there is a saying that "how many surgeons there are so many stitches."

Currently, the development of medicine stronglystepped forward, so now the patient has the right to choose the suture thread and even the technique of suturing. If the patient complains of pain in the seam area, this does not mean that the surgeon did anything wrong with the operation. However, sealing under the seam after the operation is very common. In this case, it is necessary to contact a surgical clinic or a doctor.

In most cases this is associated with a complicationAfter operations, which is called "Seroma". This formation in the cavity, which is filled with lymph. In general, the seroma usually disappears on its own and does not pose a huge danger for the patient. Its formation is associated with the intersection of lymphatic vessels. And as you know, they in turn are much smaller than the blood vessels and therefore are not visible to the eye. They can not be coagulated or bandaged. The bleeding lymph accumulates, creating a cavity.

The only serious complication of seromais its suppuration. To avoid this, it is necessary to treat the area of ​​the postoperative wound with an antiseptic. Antiseptic in this case is best to use water, not alcohol. It is also necessary to cover the scar with a moistened solution of dimexide with a gauze napkin.

A more serious complication ifseal under the seam after the operation - fistula. In medical practice, fistula occurs as a result of suppuration of scars after surgery. Implant contamination contamination by pathogenic microorganisms of suture material became the immediate cause of complication of this kind. In this case, a visible consolidation of the granuloma is formed in the fistula.

Fistula formation is very easy to recognizeindependently, as the symptoms are quite pronounced: seals or mushroom granulations appear around the contaminated area of ​​the wound; inflammation of the postoperative cicatrix; excretion of pus from the wound; redness in the seam area; the appearance of sensations of pain, edema; increase in temperature (possibly up to 39 degrees).

Of course, that after the operation of seals andFormations in the seam area should not be. If suddenly this happens, it is necessary to appear to the surgeon who directly operated you, if this is not possible, then to the surgeon at the place of residence. In the case of no use of any measures, such suppuration will lead to the development of an abscess.
