|Issue Date:||3-Mar-2023||metadata.dc.date:||2023||Publication information:||Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery 2023||Abstract:||Studies support an inherent morbidity associated with the use of surgical drains, such as post-operative pain, infection, reduction in mobility and delay in patient discharge, whilst not preventing seroma or haematoma. Our series aims to evaluate the feasibility, benefits and safety of performing drainless DIEP surgery and to formulate an algorithm for when this can be employed.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/32264||DOI:||10.1097/PRS.0000000000010340||ORCID:||Journal:||Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery||PubMed URL:||36862959||ISSN:||1529-4242||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||DIEP
