What is an abdominal wall seroma?


Answer by  Mrscmrn (1449)

A seroma is a pocket of clear serous fluid that can occur after surgery or an injury. It can cause some discomfort. The pocket is usually reabsorbed spontaneously after several weeks. A physician should exam it to make the correct diagnosis. In rare cases it may need drained. Occassionally a small hardened area may be left following reabsorption.

This is a common condition after having a tummy tuck or other major stomache surgery. It is a large abscess that needs to be drained via doctor.

its a sort of lesion that occurs after surgery. Sometimes these need to be drained when they accumulate too much fluid and are interfering with the healing of the wound.

Seroma is abnormal opening of muscle wall and abnormal swelling of internal muscles after a surgery. Abdominal wall seroma is severe abdominal muscle wall opening and internal sweling of muscles. This happens after an abdominal surgery which is not treated with proper sutures and proper antiseptics and antibiotics. This can be cured by seroma drainer.
